Anyone at the union know maths?Just got an email from Brian saying that we are fully going to support the AUT on the strike action. Personally I completely agree, professors in UK are heavily underpaid for the amount of work they do and they must be recognized. What I dont get is how the union is thinking about this issue.
The problem with all the officers is that they want to be loved by everyone. I can understand that they want university professors to get better pay but then where is the money going to come from? Its certainly not going to fall off trees (although that might help). I realize that the professors were promised an increase in fees, and rightly so. But I don't know how the union is opposed to top-up fees and yet wants professors to get a higher pay at the same time? Obviously someone somewhere making these decisions needs to take a crash course in mathematics.
