Voting on Legislative Proposal

Renaming the University's Non-Academic Staff

Explanatory note

The following Legislative Proposal, submitted by Council under Part 2 of Congregation Regulations 2 of 2002 (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, 9 October 2002, Vol. 133, p. 161 as amended on 12 October 2004, Gazette Vol. 135, p. 214), which is promoted on the recommendation of the Personnel Committee, replaces the reference to non-academic staff with a reference to support staff, to more accurately describe the contribution of members of this staff group.

WHEREAS it is expedient to amend the reference to non-academic staff in Statute XIV, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Statute XIV (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, 9 October 2002) in sections 1. (1) and 1. (2) delete 'non-academic' and substitute 'support'.

Regulations to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

1 In Council Regulations 1 of 2004, concerning Financial Regulations (Supplement (2) to Gazette No. 4691, 24 March 2004, p. 788), in regulations 32.1(1) and 32.1(2) delete 'non-academic' and substitute 'support'.

2 In Council Regulations 3 of 2004, concerning the Employment of University Staff (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4703, 14 July 2004, p. 1269), delete existing regulation 1. (2) and substitute:

'1. (2) departments and institutions, in respect of academic-related and support staff. (Support staff are those university employees who are not covered by the Visitatorial Board arrangements under Statute XII of the University Statutes.)'

[These changes reflect the renaming of the University's non-academic staff as support staff. ]
