CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Trustees for the University of Central Arkansas have rescinded cost-of-living adjustments they had awarded some workers after realizing there was no mechanism in the state’s budget for granting them.

In a conference call Thursday, the board opted to give classified employees bonuses later in the year if their work is satisfactory, above average or exceeds standards.

The Log Cabin Democrat newspaper reported (https://bit.ly/1UjkQmZ ) President Tom Courtway said the mistake occurred because adjustments had been allowed previously.

Courtway said the classified employees’ merit bonuses at the end of the year will range from 1.5 percent to 4.5 percent.

Faculty members and unclassified workers will receive a 2 percent cost-of-living adjustment approved at the board’s meeting May 23.

Classified positions are assigned to the school from the state Office of Personnel Management.
