Study shows large pay gap in UC system
Friday, February 3, 2006
The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees' study says top
UC executives earned up to 73 percent more than those in the Cal-State University system and up to 94 percent more than those in the community college system.
But UC spokesman Noel Van Nyhuis says the wage comparisons aren't fair since the system has to compete for talent and employees. He also says the executives
base salaries were found to be less than those at other public research institutions.
Van Myhuis: Mercer Human Resources Consulting conducted an extensive study of total compensation at UC and found that UC is generally at market comparable levels in total compensation when employee health and retirement benefits are factored in.
He says the UC is now studying the total compensation given to all employees,
including cash salaries, health benefits and retirement.
The employee union represents about 18,000 UC food service, custodial and other workers. Ed Joyce, KPBS News.
