Let’s NOT Talk ! VC hides University response to pension changes

UCU has submitted a Freedom of Information request for the University of Bath’s official response to Universities UK about the proposed changes to USS but the Vice Chancellor has refused to disclose it.  The University’s response to the FOI request claims that  “the likely harm to the University’s ability to exchange views and provide advice for the purposes of deliberation and consultation in a free and frank fashion and the likely resulting prejudice to the effective conduct of public affairs would not be in the public interest and outweighs public interest factors militating in favour of disclosure. This information is therefore exempt from disclosure.”

UCU will call for a review of this unwarranted secrecy on the grounds that members of USS have the right to know what representations have been made in their name.
