    What's bad about it? Also, isn't there only one Chancellor?
    So, what's wrong with awarding yourself a 6% pay rise.

    But striking for a 1% pay rise is wrong?

    And yes, but I believe VC also got a rise

    You wont even notice.

    Exams are staffed by Uni staff not academics.

    Admin staff run Admissions at most Unis and 99.9% of all offers have already been made.

    Academics get 2 days off. The world continues to turn and Universities go on just as they always do.

    End of.

    If they wanted to get paid more they should have chosen a different profession.
    As everyone else belonging to a union should act... until there's absolutely no-one left to do their job.

    Good for the unions, staff to resign over the external examiner duties!
