UCU backs a ballot on jobs, pay and pensions

Issue No. 2226

The Higher Education Committee (HEC) of the UCU has unanimously agreed to ballot for industrial action over both the employers’ offer on pay and job security and the attack on university pensions.

The decision was made when the HEC met on Friday of last week. This is now subject to endorsement by the higher education special sector conference on 25 November in Manchester.

The Tories want to trash education. Lecturers need to ballot as soon as possible for action to stop the assault.
