"The BOT recommends that Synod 2012 adopt the salary grid as detailed below for use in fiscal year 2012-2013. The Board is proposing a 3 percent increase over 2012"
This what I read in the 2012 Synod Agenda supplement. It goes on to list the upper and lower Salary ranges at the denominational level. I am assuming this refers to staff and management in GR and in Burlington, Canada. Correct me if I have this wrong. It does not show who is being paid how much and for what position.
In Ontario, Canada, we have what is referred too as the "Sunshine Law" in which all public servants and those who work for "crown Corporations" and have a salary over $100,000.00 annually have their names and positions published once a year. This has resulted in some degree of openness and accountability. It has also shown some shocking instances of people making far too much, positions eliminated, and embarrassed management fired.
I think it's a good thing and our church should do at least as much. The people in the pew deserve clarity.
