Joint Report of the Council and the General Board on the implementation in Cambridge of the 2000 pay increase for non-clinical academic and academic-related staff

The COUNCIL and the GENERAL BOARD beg leave to report to the University as follows:

1. In their Notice on University stipends dated 24 July 2000 (Reporter, 1999-2000, p. 1008) the Coun-cil announced that the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) had made an offer of a 3 per cent across-the-board increase in the salaries of all non-clinical academic and academic-related staff and assistant staff. The UCEA Board had indicated that this offer was in full and final settlement of the 2000-01 pay round and would not be reviewed. They had recommended to institutions that they considered implementing the pay award from the relevant implementation date for each staff group, i.e. 1 April 2000 for all staff groups within the University, except for the CS and D Divisions of the assistant staff for whom the date would be 1 July 2000. In addition the UCEA Board had recommended the following:

(i) the removal of the bottom salary (point 5) on the national academic Lecturer A scale, taking the minimum salary point to £18,731 as from 1 April 2000;
(ii) an additional increase on all scale points in the M division and the CD rate of pay of 1 per cent, making a total increase of 4 per cent for this lower paid staff group.

The Council also announced that they had agreed that an increase on the basis set out above should be made in all relevant stipends, associated payments, and salaries, subject to the outcome of further developments, if any, at national level in the terms of the offer.

2. The Council accordingly submitted a Grace (Grace 2, 26 July 2000) to the Regent House for the approval of a 3 per cent increase in the stipends of certain University offices which required the approval of the Regent House. This Grace was subsequently approved, and corresponding increases in the stipends of those offices which do not require the approval of the University have been approved by the Council and the General Board, as appropriate, as well as corresponding increases in the salaries of analogous unestablished staff. In the case of contract research staff and other staff supported on non-central funds, payment of the increase was conditional on funds being available to meet the cost of the increase from the relevant funding source.

3. The Notice indicated that the details of implementation of the 2000-01 pay offer on stipends would be set out in the usual Joint Report of the Council and the Board early in the Michaelmas Term 2000, and that the translation of the abolition of the bottom salary point of the national Lecturer Grade A into the Cambridge arrangements would be addressed in the Report. This Report sets out the detail referred to in the Notice and incorporates, in addition to the usual corrections in the entries to the Schedules, a number of other necessary revisions consequent upon the introduction of the University Senior Lectureship and Additional Increments Schemes.

4. The bottom point of the national Lecturer Grade A scale is the same as the bottom point of the Cambridge University Assistant Lecturer scale. The Council and the General Board have accordingly agreed that, with effect from 1 April 2000, the bottom point of the University Assistant Lectureship scale and other offices with an identical scale be abolished. The holders of these offices who were on this point on or after 1 April 2000 will be retrospectively moved to the next higher point (step 8 of the University stipends) from that date. Any adjustment to the scale of stipends for University Assistant Lecturers requires approval by the Regent House. A recommendation to make this adjustment has therefore been included in paragraph 14 of this Report. There is only one other office which has an identical scale, namely that of Assistant Keeper at the Fitzwilliam Museum. The Council have agreed to approve a similar adjustment in the case of this office subject to the approval of the recommendation.

5. There has been no subsequent review of the offer by UCEA set out in paragraph 1. The Council had initially set aside funds in anticipation of a 3.5 per cent increase. They have agreed that the additional amount of the allocation not required to fund the national increase (0.5 per cent) should be used to reward members of the assistant staff. Accordingly, the Council have agreed that a uniform lump sum be paid to each member of the assistant staff employed by the University. Payment will be made with the December instalment of salary.

6. The increases in stipends entail consequential changes in the provisions relating to deductions on account of College emoluments and in the maximum level of payments for administrative work; these changes are set out in paragraphs 7 and 8 below. In addition to increases in stipends, certain other payments have also been increased, as detailed in paragraphs 9 and 11.

Deductions on account of College emoluments

7. The increase in the maximum of the scale of stipends for University Lecturers has resulted in an increase to £6,600 from 1 April 2000 in the maximum emoluments that an officer may receive from a College without attracting deductions from his or her University stipend. The central bodies are currently reviewing the policy of making such deductions and associated matters such as the restriction on the annual rate of a non-pensionable payment a person may receive on account of administrative work (see paragraph 8 below) and they will report on these matters in due course.

Payments additional to stipend

8. In accordance with Regulation 5 of the regulations for payments additional to stipend (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 645), the maximum annual rate of non-pensionable payment that may be made to any person on account of administrative work on behalf of a Faculty or Department has also been increased to £6,600 from 1 April 2000.

Discretionary payments to University officers

9. Although the scheme has been abolished and replaced by new arrangements for awarding additional increments on a permanent basis, with effect from 1 October 2000, discretionary payments currently held by University officers will continue for a transitional period.

10. The annual rate of these payments to University officers in non-professorial grades has been increased to £1,923 from 1 April 2000.

Supplementary payments to Professors

11. The four rates of pensionable supplementary payments to Professors approved by Grace 8 of 25 November 1998 are increased to £5,939, £11,879, £17,818, and £24,215 from 1 April 2000.

Stipends determined by the Council or the General Board

12. The opportunity has been taken to update the Schedules of stipends and scales of stipends which are determined by the Council or the General Board (Schedules II and III, Statutes and Ordinances, pp. 640 and 642) so as to take account of the establishment and the suppression of certain offices as well as to include the new steps for certain offices following the approval of the Council and the General Board's Joint Report on new arrangements for additional discretionary pay awards. As a result of the introduction of the new steps, certain offices on steps 25 and above have been transferred to the equivalent new step.

13. An adjustment has also been made to the stipend and scales of stipends of various offices: these are the offices of Telecommunications Manager, Librarian of the Faculty of Economics and Politics, Librarian of the Faculty of Oriental Studies, Secretary in the Department of Engineering (Administration and Personnel), and Secretary in the Department of Engineering (Finance).

14. The Council and the General Board recommend:

That, with effect from 1 April 2000, Schedule I, stipends and scales of stipends for University Officers specified in Statute D, I, 1(a) and certain other offices (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 640), be amended so that the entry for University Assistant Lecturers reads as follows:
