Christopher Newport University Raises Minimum Wage And Awards Bonuses

NEWPORT NEWS—Before announcing his retirement at the end of the 2021-2022 academic season, CNU President Paul Trible sent out an announcement email to thank employees and pandemic workers for their efforts.

Pandemic workers who have been cleaning classrooms and offices, making sure that everything continued to operate smoothly, prepared and delivered food, and kept the campus looking good during the last 18 months of the pandemic received bonuses up to $500.

President Trible went on to say that the university is taking significant steps to hire more workers for vacancies on campus.  Starting October 1, the university’s minimum wage will also be increasing from $10.50 per hour to $13 per hour, an increase of 24 percent for 136 current employees.

The university will also be hiring an HR consulting company to conduct a comprehensive analysis of all staff salaries.
