University Staff Strike Over Pay

MMU DramaUniversity members across the region are taking action today on pay.

Universities are cash-rich institutions, which have accrued cash surpluses of £2bn over the past two years, and top bosses are paid on average over £240,000 a year. 

Staff have seen their pay fall by 13% in recent years.  More than 4,000 higher education workers are paid less than the living wage of £7.65 per hour and universities could easiy afford a decent pay rise.
