University Chancellor warns high earners as MP attacks ‘eyewatering’ VC salary

Outgoing University Chancellor Lord Tugendhat has warned of the dangers of the growing pay gap between high earners and the rest of society.   The Chancellor said in a lecture on Trust and Transparency in Public Life and Business to mark University Founders Day that leaders risk losing their moral authority if their pay and pay increases outrun those of the people who work for them.   You can read the transcript of Lord Tugendhat’s lecture here

Meanwhile Andrew Murrison MP has responded to news of the Bath VC’s ‘eyewatering’ 25% pay increase by telling the Chair of Bath’s Remuneration Committee Peter Troughton that he agrees with UCU.
