Staff at the University of Bath have called on the vice-chancellor and board of governors to resign following a report into how the university is run.
There has been a widespread outcry at the salary and benefits earned by Dame Glynis Breakwell. It has now been revealed that she had a £17,500 rise last year - taking her total earnings to £468,500. That's more than any vice-chancellor in the country.
The report, by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (Hefce), made 13 recommendations for improvements in connection with its remuneration committee, which sets the vice-chancellor’s pay.
Dame Glynis was a member when her latest pay increase was decided but she has since stepped down.
The report also covered the conduct of the university’s Court where there have been a number of resignations following the revelations.
Trade unions representing staff at the University of Bath (UCU, UNISON and Unite) are calling for change.
Thomas Sheppard, chair of Council, Bath University's governing body, has responded to the HEFCE report, saying "we are committed to ensuring our university is well led and well governed".
