stein's salary is $12,600, and
Clark indicated at the hearing
that she would accept that
amount if her request were
turned down.
The University committee re-
turned its decision May 28,
denying Clark's allegations. The
committee's decision stated,
"Since we find your allegation
that you are underpaid because
of sex discrimination to be un-
founded, no adjustment will be
made. To the contrary, we find
that based on your performance,
your salary growth has been ap-
propriate."
The decision further sai d:
"When compared to others
with similar professional qual-
ifications, at the time of em-
ployment, your pe'ogress in
terms of salary and title chang-
es has been unusually rapid."
Presenting Clark's case to the

UNION

University was law Prof. Harry
Edwards.
Upon notification of the Uni-
versity's decision, Edwards pre-
pared a Memorandum on the
case which he yesterday pre-
sented to the University's Wo-
men's Commission. Edwards
called the University's decision
"ineptly evolved, illogical and
childishly naive."
In his memorandum, Edwards
charges that Clark was denied
an open hearing, and the rights
of confrontation and of cross-
examination.
In addition, Edwards charges
the University with not allow-
ing Clark "to know in advance
of the 'evidence' to be used
against her in the Commit-
tee's final decision."
According to Edward's state-
ment, the University investigat-
ed additional information about
Clark after her hearing had
ended. For example, certain
facts about other employes at
HSRI, which had never been
mentioned at the hearing, were
cited in the Committee's report.
The two procedures each cit-
ed differences in the two em-
ployes' educational backgrounds,
experience at HSRI and specific
functions. It was explained that
it is easier to have a fixed
standard for clerical work and
manual labor than for the type

of work Epstein and Clark do,
in the University's decision,
signed by Manager of Employe
Relations James Thiry.
"This is not a case of com-
paring employes assigned to a
classification with narrowly de-
fined levels of skill, effort and
responsibility and a single rate
for a particular 'job.' It
does not have a single rate
structure for any given 'job,"'
the decision stipulates.
Clark has a B.A. and is a
graduate student in Social
Work, whereas Epstein has an
M.A. in Urban planning and is
a doctoral student in that field.
Both Epstein and Clark work
in the Alcohol Safety program
at HSRS. According to Clark,
"no difference in job responsi-
bilities, expectations or quality
of work has been explained to
me."
Last Dec., President Robben
Fleming announced that "the
University commits itself to the
payment of back wages to any
female who has lost wages due
to discrimination by the Uni-
versity because of her sex." This
statement constituted part of
the University's affirmative ac-
tion plan for the equal employ-
ment of women, negotiated with
HEW.
Last fall, HEW withheld the
University's federal research
contract eligibility until t h e
tentative approval of a plan
to correct alleged sex discrim-
ination.
