UNSW staff are revved up over management’s 2019 parking prices. This year staff earning less than $40 000 are charged $774 for an annual permit, next year the ceiling rises to $55 000, but so does the price, to $976. And staff earning above $55 000 will pay $1947, up from $1542. Anybody who wants to park with the gentry in the “reserve zone” in 2019 will be up for $5841 – compared to $4625 now. There is no information on what the parking spot reserved for Nobel Prize winners will cost.
“So much for enterprise bargaining pay rises” says a learned reader clutching a bus timetable.
