Promise Broken at Off Campus Meeting
Eyeopener May 29, 2018
Based on a motion to increase RSU salaries, board members will now get an honorarium of $1,500 per semester, instead of the previous $1,000. The executive team will now earn $47,000 a year with benefits, a 30.5 per cent increase from last year. The 2017-2018 executive team received $36,000 per annum.
The motion’s approval came after RSU president Ram Ganesh said he opposed the increase when the motion was first proposed during the AGM in April. At the time, the motion was not presented or voted on due to a lack of quorum at the meeting.
The motion was unanimously passed during the meeting.
