See the Telegraph’s article from 13 March and the original research by the Guardian (published 14 March). The National UCU have released this article, in which Sally Hunt states “The pay rises senior staff, in particular vice-chancellors, have enjoyed in recent years have been a constant source of ridicule for higher education. There is no transparency or justification for the arbitrary, and usually enormous, rises they receive.”

    A quick glance through the University of Leeds accounts shows that our own VC’s pay has gone from £153k in 2004 to its current level of £315k in 2009. I wish my pay had more than doubled in the same period.
