Histo. Pay Range

From:"Dawson, Glen"


I need HELP!!!!  Our union contract is coming up soon and I am requesting
that they address the pay range for our histology dept.  I believe that ours
is well below the going rate but my union rep. says I need some
documentation on other pay scales from other Histo labs.  Since
location/region is taken into consideration, I am especially interested in
ranges from WI, IA, MI, MN, IL areas but would welcome any ranges that would
be offered from anywhere (Even you Aussie's should chime in if you would).
If you are uncomfortable posting your pay scale for all to see, email me
directly and I will be sworn to secrecy.  Our current ranges follow:
Histology Technician:  Min: $11.61   Mid:  $15.70   Max: $19.79         Lead
Histology Technician:   Min: $12.76   Mid:  $17.28   Max:  $21.79

I thought it only fair to show you the numbers I am looking at.  These will
be modified in the upcoming contract negotiations and I want to present a
realistic picture of what it takes to retain and recruit histo people these

I hope that with your help and with the new ASCP wage/vacancy survey I can
help all of our histotechs get better compensation. 

Thank-you in Advance,
