USS and National Pay Bargaining update

University shield

The Joint Expert Panel (JEP) established to review the basis of the USS valuation has reported, and the University has responded formally to a UUK consultation on the JEP recommendations.

There is also an update on the UCU response to this year’s national pay bargaining process.

JEP consultation

My update on 18 September contained details of the JEP recommendations. The University has now provided a formal response to a UUK employer consultation, offering our cautious support for the recommendations.

You can see the University’s response here.  

National Pay Bargaining

On 29 August I reported that the UCU was balloting its members with a view to taking strike action and/or action short of a strike, with the ballot closing on 19 October 2018.

The UCU has now confirmed that no strike action or action short of a strike will follow locally.

I will provide further information on progress in respect of the JEP recommendations as soon as it becomes available.
