The Personnel Committee has the authority to develop a system for determining compensation, including benefits for the staff of UUCNH. The system will include guidelines for: the evaluation of personnel, differentiating between the Minister and the other staff of the church, determining fair and equitable compensation, coordination with the budgeting process and approval processes for compensation, including BOT approval.
The PC will have the prime responsibility for negotiating with the Minister on the Minister’s compensation package. It should also have responsibility for working with the Minister on recommendations for compensation for the other staff members of the Church, including the DLFD, the Music Director, office staff, and any other personnel. The Bellwood director and teachers are included in the scope and practices must conform to the Declaration of Understanding Concerning Bellwood Preschool and Kindergarten, dated 10/7/13. The system will include specific procedures for involving the appropriate constituencies, including the Finance Committee, the Board and Minister, as appropriate.
