University of Iowa freezes most pay increases

The University of Iowa has frozen pay increases for teachers and other staff members until January.

At this time, it’s not certain whether the freeze will be lifted.

University administrators blame the freeze on uncertainty about revenue there will be from tuition, fees and state allocations. 

In April, the university announced a moratorium on building projects and a review of whether to close some centers.

University of Iowa Health Care employees will receive average salary hikes of one percent beginning July 1. Also, workers covered by bargaining agreements will receive their scheduled pay hikes. 

Coaches and sports staff are paid through the athletic department’s budget and won’t affected by the freeze.

The university has more than 18,000 employees.
