Crossing swords over salaries 3

August 3, 2007

It is outrageous for an unnamed vice-chancellor to say: "The issue is how long we can continue having settlements in which pay goes up but there is no corresponding increase in productivity."

What we have had is years of increasing productivity with no corresponding increase in salary. Vice-chancellors always argued that they could not afford to increase pay but that if funding were ever increased then we would see some benefits. Now that they have the huge boost in income from top-up fees they are finding new reasons not to reward our increased productivity.
