Oct 2018: Trade union laws frustrate action on pay and equality
Ballots in higher education (HE) and further education (FE) in England closed earlier this month full results can be found here. Thanks to everyone that voted and helped to get the vote out. Unfortunately despite enormous efforts, very few institutions achieved the 50% turnout now required under anti-trade union laws. The results and next steps will now be considered by the union. Find out more about the campaign to repeal the anti-trade union laws here. 

Ballot closes 19 Oct PLEASE USE YOUR VOTE

The current ballot regarding pay and equality closes on Friday 19 October. The law says UCU needs at least a 50% turnout in ballots to take action, so members are urged to vote early if they think education staff deserve a decent pay deal.PLEASE USE YOUR VOTE
