UCU Congress 2015 – pay, pensions and job security at top of the agenda

This weekend sees UCU hold its annual congress in Glasgow.   The Congress has been cut short by one day because of the strike action by railworkers, but there will still be time to discuss:

  • The threat of new, even more repressive anti-trade union laws
  • The miserly pay offer of 1.0% by our employers
  • A legal challenge to the Trustees of the USS pension scheme
  • The growing threat of casualization in our sector and beyond
  • The campaign against huge cuts in adult and further education (there will be a lobby of Parliament on 16th June
  • The increasing number of redundancies at universities and colleges across the UK – especially in professional services
  • The victimisation of trade union reps at Bolton and Salford Universities
  • Working with other trade unions to challenge ‘austerity’ in social and economic policy

and lots more.


Our Congress delegates Chris Roche and Michael Carley will be reporting back to a meeting for members on Wednesday 3rd June 1.15 pm in 1E2.4
