Salary Increase Welcomed

Salary Increase Welcomed

The recent academic salary increases are the most satisfactory in principle and in detail since those of 1960, according to the Victoria University Council.

This attitude was recorded at the Council's Annual meeting in July when the Council accepted a motion from the Pro-Chancellor, Mr K.B. O'Brien to that effect.

While the resolution affirmed that the university still faces problems as a result of the decision the Council expressed its appreciation of the fair and reasonable hearings given to university representatives.

The cartoon 'Floyd' drawn by Auckland artist Barry Linton published on the back page of the last issue of Salient was originally published in Craccum. Our apologies to Craccum for omission of a credit.

The new salary scales, which are backdated to April 1, 1970, are as follows (old scale in brackets):
  • Junior Lecturers: $3000-$3800 ($2500-2900)
  • Lecturers: $4300-5500 ($3100-4900)
  • Senior Lecturers: $5600-7200 ($4 700-6000)
  • Readers: $7000-7600 ($6900-7300)

The Vice-Chancellor, Dr D.B. Taylor, commenting on the salary scales for Victoria University, noted that some $15,000 of the university's budgeted non-salary money has had to be transferred to help meet the extra costs of salaries.
