Suspension of industrial action by UCU

15 Jan 2015

Message from the Director of Human Resources

I wrote to you on Friday, 9 January 2015 to inform you that UCU had notified the University that it was resuming continuous industrial action short of a strike in the form of an assessment and marking boycott on Friday, 16 January 2015.

I am very pleased to inform you that UCU today confirmed they had taken a decision to further suspend all industrial action called by them in relation to their USS dispute from 16 January 2015 to allow them to consult further with their members following a period of intense negotiations and significant progress at the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC).

We hope that that this will now enable both parties to agree proposals for a reform that offers an affordable and sustainable pension scheme that remains attractive for both current and future members.  

If you have any queries about this, then please refer to:

Karen Heaton
Director of Human Resources
