We are in dispute with the University of Birmingham, and on Wed 15th May strike ballot papers will be sent out to all our support staff members.
We are asking UoB management to do the right thing: end inequality & treat us fairly!
UNISON members voted to demand that senior managers are paid no more than ten times the equivalent of the lowest paid staff on campus. 100 managers earn between £100k – £166k/year. 8 managers earn between £170k – £270k/year. The Vice Chancellor David Eastwood earns £444k and has an incentive bonus of £80,000 (set when he was sitting on his own remuneration committee!).
Cut senior managers’ pay, not ours. The University can afford to pay support staff more.

We will be releasing more materials later in the week – stay tuned!
