Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 39, No. 1, March 1, 1976


The Students' Association executive has been split wide open over the unexpected dismissal of the office manager, Mrs Goodall.

A meeting of the executive on 10 February asked for her resignation after a long discussion in closed committee about the running of the association office.

The Key motion, moved by Vice President Steve Underwood and seconded by SRC Co-ordinator Anthony Ward, read:

"That the Executive is not satisfied with Mrs Goodall's performance as office manager and therefore resolves:
a)to request Mrs Goodall to resign effective from 12 March, and to communicate her resignation to the executive by 4pm on 13 Feb.
b)failing (a), to dismiss Mrs Goodall from 12 March, notice to be given from 4pm on 13 February.
c)that with receipt of Mrs Goodall's resignation an extra month's salary be paid as severance pay.
d)that Mrs Goodall be given the option of ceasing work at any date up to 5 March, with a weeks' prior notice without affecting salary payments to 12 March."

This motion was debated for over two hours and was finally passed 4-2 with one abstention. Those voting for the motion were Steve Underwood, Anthony Ward, Rae Mazengarb and Mike Curtis, those against were Gyles Beckford and John Henderson, with Anne Dwyer abstaining. Scott Wilson, Peter Aagaard and Peter Thrush were not present.
