Joint Report of the Council and the General Board on the implementation in Cambridge of the 2003 and 2004 pay increases for non-clinical academic and academic-related staff

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

1. The subject of the Report is the implementation of the 1 August 2003 and 2004 pay increases for non-clinical academic and academic-related staff. A Grace recommending the implementation of the 1 August 2003 part of the award has already been approved (Grace 1 of 25 February 2004). The Report recommends approval of the 1 August 2004 part of the award and sets out in the Annexes to the Report the detailed changes to the general scale of stipends and Schedules of stipends for 2003 and 2004 (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 649ff) necessitated by the pay settlement.

2. The Council's Notice dated 23 February 2004 (Reporter, 2003-04, p. 490) explained the background of the award, which is that, from 1 August 2003, there should be an increase to salaries of 3.44% or £550, whichever was the greater and, from 1 August 2004, an increase on 2003-04 pay rates of 3%.

3. The award was linked to acceptance by the trade unions nationally of a framework agreement which is intended to facilitate the modernization of pay arrangements in the sector. Institutions are expected to complete the implementation of the new arrangements by 1 August 2006. All seven trade unions nationally have now accepted the award and its associated framework agreement. As a first step in implementing the necessary changes in the University's pay arrangements, the Council and the General Board intend to publish a Consultative Report on a new pay and grading structure for non-clinical staff in the University.

4. The Council and the General Board have agreed to recommend that authorization be given to pay the second-year increase and consequently propose that from 1 August 2004:

(i) the stipends for all non-clinical University officers whose stipends are steps on the general scale of stipends be increased by 3% (see paragraph 5);
(ii) the stipends for officers whose stipends are not steps on the general scale be increased by 3%, except the stipend of the Deputy High Steward;1
(iii) the payments for administrative responsibility specified in Regulation 1 of the regulations for payments additional to stipends, the discretionary payments made to University Lecturers and certain other officers, and the supplementary payments made to Professors and certain other officers be increased by 3% (see paragraphs 5-8).

5. The authorization of the increase for some University offices (listed in Schedule I of the regulations on stipends (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 650)), though not all, requires the approval of the Regent House. Increases in the stipends of other offices (listed in Schedules II and III (Statutes and Ordinances, pp. 650-652) may be authorized by the Council and by the General Board, respectively. Increases to offices listed in Schedules II and III are customarily approved by the Council and the General Board, subject to the Regent House approving increases to the offices listed in Schedule I. The Council and the General Board accordingly recommend in paragraph 10 below a 3% increase to the stipends of University offices listed in Schedule I and in all associated payments (see paragraphs 6-8). The resulting general scale of stipends setting out the increases in stipend for each step is shown in Annex 1. In the case of contract research staff and other staff supported on non-central funds, payment of the increase will be conditional on funds being made available to meet the cost of the increase from the relevant funding source. The increase in the salaries of members of the assistant staff does not require the approval of the Regent House.

Discretionary payments to University officers

6. The annual rate of the pensionable discretionary awards to University officers in non-professorial grades will be increased to £2,228 from 1 August 2004. 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

7. The four rates of pensionable supplementary payments to Professors approved by Grace 8 of 25 November 1998 remain at 13, 26, 39, and 53% of the standard Cambridge professorial stipend. The payments accordingly will be increased as follows (see paragraph 4 above):

 1 August 20031 August 2004
13%£6,681£6,882
26%£13,362£13,763
39%£20,044£20,645
53%£27,239£28,056

Pensionable payments additional to stipend for the holders of certain University offices

8. Formal approval by the Regent House for these payments is no longer required since all pensionable payments additional to stipend are now approved under the authority of Regulation 1 of the regulations for payments additional to stipend (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 655). The payments in question will be increased by 3% from 1 August 2004 and are those to:

a University officer designated resident Warden of Madingley Hall;

an Assistant Secretary or Senior Assistant Secretary, Institute of Continuing Education, designated Deputy Secretary;

a Careers Adviser, Careers Service, designated Deputy Director;

a Keeper or Senior Keeper, Fitzwilliam Museum, designated Deputy Director;

a Counsellor designated Head of the University Counselling Service.

Stipends determined by the Council or the General Board

9. 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, p. 650) by including the following adjustments which have been made to the stipends and scales of stipends of certain offices: these are the offices of Secretary of the Accommodation Syndicate, Senior Assistant Curators in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the Museum of Zoology, the Sedgwick Museum, and the Herbarium, Secretaries of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine, the Departments of Engineering (Finance) and Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, and the Judge Institute of Management Studies, and Librarians in the Faculties of Economics and Politics, English and Education, the Judge Institute of Management Studies, and the Centre of South Asian Studies.

10. The Council and the General Board accordingly recommend:

That the following payments be increased by 3% with effect from 1 August 2004, until further notice:

(i)the stipends of all non-clinical University officers referred to in Statute D, I, 1(a) except the Deputy High Steward;1
(ii)the payments for administrative responsibility specified in Regulation 1 of the regulations for payments additional to stipends (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 655);
(iii)the discretionary payments made to University Lecturers and certain other officers;
(iv)the supplementary payments made to Professors and certain other officers.
