University salaries and stipends: Notice

3 October 2005

The Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) and the national trades unions have agreed a pay settlement which provides for a 3 per cent increase in the salaries of non-clinical academic and academic-related staff and assistant staff or for increases for the lowest paid staff of £500 for those on salaries below £11,500; £450 for those on salaries between £11,500 and £12,500; and £400 for those on salaries between £12,500 and £13,200.

The Council have agreed that an increase on the basis set out above should be made in all relevant stipends, associated payments, and salaries with effect from 1 August 2005.

The stipends of certain University offices require the approval of the Regent House. The Council are accordingly submitting a Grace (Grace 2, p. 14) to the Regent House for the approval of a 3 per cent increase in these stipends. Subject to the approval of this Grace, it is expected that the corresponding increases in the stipends of those offices which do not require the approval of the University will be approved by the Council or the General Board, as appropriate, as will 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 will be conditional on funds being available to meet the cost of the increase from the relevant funding source. The increase in the salaries of members of the assistant staff is not dependent on the approval of the Grace.

It is hoped that, if the Grace is approved, the increases will be paid to all staff in the October payroll together with the arrears.
