Announcements

Minimum Wage Increase
The minimum wage in Washington, D.C., has increased to $6.60 per hour. The Office of Human Resources has reviewed the hourly pay rates of all CUA employees to ensure that everyone is earning at least this new rate. Those employees who were below the new minimum (all of whom were students) received raises to $6.60 per hour, effective Jan. 1. Their raises will be reflected in the Jan. 25 paychecks.

Going forward, supervisors and hiring managers are advised that all new hires must earn at least the new D.C. minimum wage. To read more about CUA's response to the minimum wage increase, visit http://humanresources.cua.edu/minimumwage.doc. For additional questions or concerns, contact Schlain Schmidt or Laura Burhenn at 202-319-5050.

Delay in Credit Union Opening
Due to construction issues related to renovation, there will be a delay in the re-opening of the Federal Printing and Engraving Credit Union, located on the first floor of Leahy Hall. The credit union is expected to be open for business by the end of January. The credit union asks customers to be patient during this delay.

Weight Watchers at Work
CUA and the Washington, D.C., branch of Weight Watchers International invite the campus community to participate in the Weight Watchers at Work program.
