High stress levels in colleges and universities

So it’s not just me that’s feeling like a salmon again. A recent survey by the University & Colleges Union has picked up on this, and many of the reasons for it. They cite long hours, increasing work loads, responsibility without authority, and pressure from management. Personally management over my position has been good for me, but I can agree with many of the other causes and could add a few of my own.
The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) general secretary said “We are deeply concerned that so many of them feel undervalued – 72%” and “…not only do the staff suffer but their students also suffer as a result and it’s not good for the colleges in the long-run either.”
