REPORTS

Joint Report of the Council and the General Board on the implementation in Cambridge of the 2001 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 dated 11 June 2001 (Reporter, 2000-01, p. 788) the Council announced that the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) had made an offer for an increase in the salaries of all non-clinical academic and academic-related staff and assistant staff. Central to the offer was a proposal to move to a common implementation date (1 August) for future settlements of national pay awards for all groups of non-clinical staff. In order to harmonize the settlement date for all staff at 1 August from 2002 onwards, the offer comprised phased pay increases to achieve:

(i) a 16-month settlement for those with a current settlement date of 1 April 2001;
(ii) a 13-month settlement for those with a current settlement date of 1 July 2001; and
(iii) an 11-month settlement for those with a current settlement date of 1 September 2001.

The percentage increases offered were as follows:

(i) for staff with a current settlement date of 1 April 2001 (i.e. all groups of staff in the University except for the CS and D Divisions of the assistant staff) 3 per cent from 1 April 2001, followed by further increases of 1 per cent from 1 September 2001 and 1 March 2002;
(ii) for staff with a current settlement date of 1 July 2001 (i.e. the CS and D Divisions of the assistant staff) 3 per cent from 1 July 2001, followed by a further increase of 1.25 per cent from 1 January 2002.

In addition the UCEA Board recommended the following:

(i) the removal of the bottom salary (point 6) on the national academic Lecturer A scale, taking the minimum salary point to £20,066 at 1 April 2001, £20,267 at 1 September 2001 and £20,470 at 1 March 2002;
(ii) minimum cash increases for all staff who before 1 April 2001 were on scale points below £11,000, payable on the current settlement dates on a non-phased basis. For those with a current settlement date of 1 April 2001 this would be £560 and, for those with a current settlement date of 1 July 2001, £470.

It was also stated in the Notice that the Council 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. There has been no subsequent review of the offer by UCEA; the offer has now been accepted by the unions and the agreement signed by the unions and UCEA.

2. The Council submitted a Grace (Grace 10, Reporter, 2000-01, p. 821) to the Regent House for the approval of the percentage increases 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 General Board early in the Michaelmas Term 2001, 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 the usual corrections in the entries to the Schedules.

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 2001, the bottom point of the University Assistant Lecturership scale be abolished. University Assistant Lecturers on this point on or after 1 April 2001 will be retrospectively moved to the next higher point (step 9 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 13 of this Report.

5. 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 6 and 7 below. In this connection it should be noted that the Joint Report of the Council and General Board on amendments to regulations relating to deductions from and addi-tional payments to the stipends of University officers (Reporter, 2000-01, p. 1003) contains proposals that the deductions referred to in paragraph 6 below and the maximum limit on the maximum annual rate of non-pensionable payment that may be made to any persons (paragraph 7 below) be abolished. In addition to increases in stipends, certain other payments have also been increased, as detailed in paragraphs 8 and 9.

Deductions on account of College emoluments

6. The increase in the maximum of the scale of stipends for University Lecturers has resulted in an increase to £6,800 from 1 April 2001, £6,850 from 1 September 2001, and £6,900 from 1 March 2002 in the maximum emoluments that an officer may receive from a College without attracting deductions from his or her University stipend.

Payments additional to stipend

7. In accordance with Regulation 5 of the regulations for payments additional to stipend (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 653), 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 £6,800 from 1 April 2001. From 1 September 2001 this will increase to £6,850, and from 1 March 2002 £6,900.

Discretionary payments to University officers

8. The annual rate of the pensionable discretionary awards to University officers in non-professorial grades has been increased to £1,981 from 1 April 2001, £2,000 from 1 September 2001, and £2,021 from 1 March 2002. 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.

Supplementary payments to Professors

9. The four rates of pensionable supplementary payments to Professors approved by Grace 8 of 25 November 1998 are increased to £6,118, £12,235, £18,353 and £24,941 from 1 April 2001. On 1 September 2001 these payments will increase to £6,179, £12,358, £18,536 and £25,190, and again on 1 March 2002 to £6,241, £12,481, £18,722, and £25,443 respectively.

Stipends determined by the Council or the General Board

10. 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. 647 and 649) so as to take account of the transfer of certain offices. The offices of Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent in the Department of Pathology have been renamed as Secretaryships in the Department. Certain offices have transferred to the Unified Administrative Service as offices on the establishment of the General Board Division: these are the Secretaryships of the Departments of Zoology, Land Economy, and Plant Sciences, and of the Faculty of Law. In addition the Superintendentship of the Biochemical Laboratory and the Assistant Secretaryships of the Departments of Chemistry and Engineering have been redesignated. The offices of Librarians of the Faculty of Philosophy and in the Centre of South Asian Studies have been included. An adjustment has also been made to the stipends and scales of stipends of various offices: these are the offices of Senior Language Adviser, Language Adviser, Technical Officer, Secretary of the Judge Institute of Management Studies, and Administrator (Educational Services Manager) at the Judge Institute, Secretaries of the Departments of Genetics, Experimental Psychology, and Pharmacology, and of the Computer Laboratory, and the Librarian of the Institute of Criminology.

11. With regard to the office of Senior Assistant in Research, the General Board has agreed, with effect from 1 April 2001, to adjust the maximum point of the Senior Assistant in Research scale to bring it into line with the maximum point of the Research Associate scale. At present Research Associates would suffer a reduction in salary of two points if appointed to a Senior Assistantship in Research.

12. The scale of stipend for the office of Assistant Keeper in the Fitzwilliam Museum has a scale identical with that of the office of University Assistant Lecturer. The Council have agreed to approve a similar adjustment in the case of this office, subject to the approval of the recommendation in paragraph 13.

13. The Council and the General Board recommend:

That, with effect from 1 April 2001, Schedule I, Stipends and scales of stipends for University offices specified in Statute D, I, 1(a) and certain other offices (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 647), be amended so that the entry for University Assistant Lecturer reads as follows:
