BBC swallows employers’ spin on pay 6 March, 2006

Posted by blogforvictory in Uncategorized.

The BBC has dutifully reported comments by the employers ahead of Tuesday’s one-day strike, including inaccurate government data on lecturers’ salaries. The figures are cited in an employers’ press briefing handed out on Friday which does not appear on their website.

According to the employers’ spin document, lecturers earned an average of £40,657 in 2004-5. Had they checked however, the BBC would have discovered that the salary range of lecturers in post-92 universities was much lower – from £24,352 to £37,513.
