Pay dispute-WTC action over

Pay dispute update : 15 Nov 2016
Following a national consultative ballot,  UCU members voted not to undertake further industrial action at this time.

However members voted that the offer provided a sufficient basis for the union to begin detailed joint work aimed at tackling the gender pay gap and casualisation.

This means that UCU is now standing down the current work to contract industrial action as well as our call to external examiners to boycott those duties. It does not mean that UCU accepts the imposed 1.1% pay uplift.

So our next step will be to take nationally supported local action to hold  individual employers to account on gender pay and our bid to end precarious employment.
