Do v-cs deserve a PM's salary? 4

February 14, 2003

It is all very well to instruct the juveniles of academe to temper their envy of v-cs' pay. However, the rank and file might be justified in thinking that bosses who lead from the front in receiving regular percentage pay rises should clamour for similar increases for hard-pressed staff. Only Sir Richard Sykes has made any significant noise in this direction.

Given the acknowledgement that academic pay is still at early 1980s levels when indexed, which university boss is proud of the fact that his or her staff do not enjoy their (fair) share of the general rise in national wealth?
