Essex VC speaks out publicly re USS (posted 19 Feb 2018)

This morning the vice-chancellor (VC),  Anthony Forster, of the University of Essex became the latest to join the leaders of institutions like Loughborough, Glasgow, Warwick, Birkbeck, Goldsmiths, Strathclyde, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and others in publicly calling for a resumption of national talks to resolve the USS dispute.

In accepting that a solution to the dispute may well mean increases in contributions for employers he says succinctly that ‘principles sometimes cost money.’

Essex UCU thank the VC for speaking out.
