1% pay offer rejected – September ballot for action

70% of UCU members voted to reject the employers’ 1% pay offer. There will now be a postal ballot of all members from 11 September to 3rd October to decide next steps in the campaign to defend pay …

Why you should vote YES to REJECT the employers’ final offer:
 Since 2009, the value of your pay has been decreasing.
 In the context of a rising cost of living and hikes to utility bills and the cost of fuel, the employers have used successive pay rounds to push down on annual pay awards.
 As a result, higher education staff have taken a pay cut of more than 10% over the last three years.
 Higher pensions contributions are further eroding our take-home pay.
 The employers are squeezing our pay and it’s time to say enough.
