Following a national, aggregated ballot of all university branches, UCU has obtained a mandate for industrial action in respect of their disputes regarding pay, pensions and working conditions.
We are currently awaiting full details of what this means for the university. Our focus will now be on making sure any impact to student education is minimised.
There will be no immediate industrial action, as by law UCU has to give all relevant employers 14 days’ notice before any action can begin. UCU has also indicated that it will give employers time to respond to the ballot outcome before calling on members to take action.
We are aware that issues relating to pay, working conditions and pensions are very important to our staff. We have constructive relationships with all of our campus trade unions and will continue to work collaboratively with them in respect of these issues.
We will continue to keep our community updated.
