Ontario Sunshine List reveals university pay levels

The release of Ontario’s Public Sector Salary Disclosure list on March 31 highlighted a continuing gender wage gap among university employees. Published annually since 1996, the Sunshine List provides the salary and benefits of every public sector employee earning more than $100,000 in the previous year. This year’s list has grown by seven per cent, with more than 123,000 people paid more than $100,000 last year, according to CBC News. Carleton president Roseann Runte is once again the highest paid employee at Carleton. Earning a total of $400,004.97 in 2016, Runte was one of three women amongst the top 10 highest paid Carleton employees last year. Sprott School of Business associate dean of professional graduate programs Lorraine Dyke was fourth, earning […]

Letter: Guilt shouldn’t be a motivator for charity

RE: “Donating to charity is a pipe dream for many students,” April 2-8.  At the time of this writing, there are 40 different campus groups that have been classified as being focused on “Philanthropy/Social Action,” according to the Carleton University Students’ Association website. This alone tips the scales of Luke Carroll’s misrepresentation and thinly veiled character attack of who is approaching students for charitable donations, considering that there are only 15 Greek letter organizations at Carleton. In light of this, let’s talk about what Carroll’s April 2-8 letter is really about—blatant perpetuation of a bias towards the Greek community on this campus. I would like to point out, for the premise of this article, that I am not a member […]

Carleton’s sunshine list grows slightly

There was a small increase last year in the total number of Carleton employees making over $100,000 per year, according to Ontario’s Public Sector Salary Disclosure list released last week. The “sunshine list” is published every year and lists the salary and benefits of every public sector employee making over $100,000. This year 645 Carleton employees made the top-earners list in 2012, marking a slight increase of approximately three per cent from 2011. “The sunshine list is rather one-dimensional in that it only reports on salaries. The list provides no analysis whatsoever,” said Angelo Mingarelli, president of the Carleton University Academic Staff Association (CUASA). “Also, the list ignores salaries below $100,000, which does constitute a good portion of faculty at […]
