Reacting to data released today (Tuesday) by the Office for Students (OfS) on pay for senior university staff, UNISON head of education Jon Richards said:

“The OfS report demonstrates the inequality and injustice at the heart of higher education pay. Many staff struggle to make ends meet yet most vice chancellors are paid more than Theresa May.  

“Universities must ensure all staff are properly paid for their contributions to the UK’s world-class university system. Reductions in pay for the heads of 13 universities are a welcome first step and this should be repeated across the sector.”
