Vice Chancellor of Cranfield University Sir Peter Gregson’s pay package has increased to £361,000 compared to £310,000 last year- more than twice the Prime Minister’s pay.
The University of Bedfordshire’s Vice Chancellor Bill Rammell has seen his pay package, including pension payments, rise £10,000 to £260,000.
Last year University of Bedfordshire staff told BoS of their ‘terror’ after being asked to apply for voluntary redundancy and Cranfield staff slammed Sir Peter for living a ‘life of luxury’ while his workers faced redundancies
Cranfield University vice chancellor Sir Peter Gregson became the 14th highest paid university chief in the country with his pay surging from £360k to £380k, according to research by the University and College Union (UCU).
THE vice-chancellor of a university which has put 20 academics at risk of redundancy in the last year gets to live in a free house and have all his bills paid for him.
Cranfield University boss Sir Peter Gregson, who took up the post in July 2013, earns in the region of £310,000 a year – that’s more than twice the prime minister’s annual pay packet – and eight times higher than the average wage paid to the university’s staff.
In addition to his handsome salary, Sir Peter was also given a house on the university’s estate when he joined the institution, the gardens of which are tended to by a landscape gardener and the inside cared for by a number of cleaners.
A source at Cranfield told Bedfordshire on Sunday: “Whilst the VC is being paid this huge salary, redundancies have increased and more and more jobs are being covered by temporary workers.
