ACCORDING to a survey recently published salaries paid to administrative, professional and executive staff have lagged behind national wage increases when compared on a percentage basis. The actual figures, up to the end of January this year, show an increase of 13.1% against a national wage increase of 16.4%. So, concludes the report, “it is clear that traditional staff differentials are facing further erosion.” At the same time the opinion is expressed that once the current wage demands have been settled with the unions concerned, salaries for these higher grades will be rising at a rate of between 13% and 16%, probably by late summer.
