Give Big Al a bell and let him know what you think of his six week trip to North America....please leave well wishes as you wouldn't want to ruin his visit....***removed by Admin***.

Five weeks in America...nice work if you can get it ;)

Oh the irony of it.....

sorry ts, whats he done? im sure hes just pissed off that we all are paying for him to go away on free trips with our licences every year......thats what we pay them for isnt it???? I dont believe for a second that we pay them to investigate dodgy plumbers/gasfitters, we pay for them to have flash cars, sit in leather arm chairs and smoke cigars and go to strip clubs every weekend - nice one!!!

Look guys this is getting a bit silly.  Alan Bickers will be receiving very little as the Chair of the PGDB - it certainly wouldn't pay his way to North America.  If the guy has saved and is having a holiday I don't think that is any of our business.  PGDB members get $400 a day for meetings I think.  The chair will get more, but when you break it down to  a per hour (given there will be a lot of preparation time, reading etc) - it's hardly lotto winnings. 

What the guy gets paid is irrelevant, if it wasn't him getting it someone else would be - the costs are built in to running the PGDB, and have been for years - it's not new that the Board or the Chair get paid.  I don't see the relevance of this to the injustice that Badger feels he has suffered.  We obviously aren't all going to agree with each other - that's the point of the forum isn't it - for people to air their opinions.  Not a fan of abuse though not matter which way it is flowing.

TS I have done nothing wrong at all, except spoken my mind and stood up for the truth. perhaps you are one of those brown noses who think I deserve it because I spoke out, well that says volumes about you.

I would also love to know round about how much money we are talking about here when all they are doing is driving multiple industries to their knees, then wiping their hands clean of those industries and going onto the next job blame free when all is in tatters and they have successfully only made things worse.

My understanding is they $400 a day for the actual Board meetings - of which there are around 9 a year.  Travel and accommodation is obviously paid too.  I don't know what the Chair gets, but it will be more as the workload is more. There are many papers to be read prior to Board meetings but no prior work is paid for - simply the meeting day.  The annual report has been presented to Parliament on Friday, so will be available next week hopefully, all this will be disclosed in there.  It is common place to pay Board member's and I would not imagine the renumerations has gone up a lot in recent years.  The annual report should show Board running costs which are different to their payments.

He put the chairs phone number up. If it wasn't so wrong why did the admin edit it out?

I remember reading that robbo. 250k a year for good ol Phil and he did sweet f**k all it turned out in the end....Oh except for witch hunt a few guys he clashed with over the years and abuse the shit out of other pgdb staff sexually and racially.

Yet he winged like a little bi*ch when he eventually lost his employment court case over unfair dismissal. haha love it.
He definitely EARNED that, unlike his salary.

Mr Routhan was the CEO/Registrar - he was in a paid employment situation this is not what he got when he was the Board Chair. Two different things not to be confused.  This thread was commenting on Mr Bickers ability to go on holiday.  He is not a paid employee of the Board, he is the Board chair.  Two totoally different things, with two totally different remuneration packages.  The CEO/Registrar is paid considerably more than the Board chair.
