Executive meetings of the University and College union have decided unanimously to escalate the current action around pensions in both the TPS and USS schemes.
A final decision on how best to escalate the USS dispute was deferred until a delegate conference for USS branches in January.
Activists in all USS branches now need to pass motions in their branches for submission to the January conference along the following lines:
“Rolling regional, national, and UK-wide strikes proved successful in the first phase of the USS dispute and HE (USS) delegate conference resolves to deploy, alongside other agreed actions, escalating rolling regional, national, and UK-wide strikes, co-ordinated with the actions of our TPS branches and other unions where possible, as the best means to escalate our action on USS.”
