UT system to increase minimum hourly pay

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.  — Employees in the University of Tennessee system will see a dollar increase in hourly pay by next June.

Officials say the minimum starting pay rate for regular full- and part-time employees is expected to go from $8.50 an hour to $9.50 an hour by June 30.

The increase will be incremental. The rate will increase to $9 on Jan. 1, then to $9.50 six months later.

Officials say UT campuses and institutes are reallocating existing funds to cover initial costs associated with the increase, estimated to be about $273,000.

The increase will affect about 223 employees working across the state.
