Outcome of Unison re-ballot
22 Dec 2022
University receives results from the Unison re-ballot on industrial action.
We have now been informed of the outcome of the UNISON re-ballot on industrial action in relation to the 2022/23 pay offer. The ballot opened on 30 November and closed on 21 December 2022.
Our turnout was 37.75% of eligible UNISON members, so failed to reach the legal 50% threshold required to give a mandate for strike action in relation to this ballot. 86.84% (297 staff) of those who voted were in favour of industrial action. In total, 906 individuals were eligible to vote at the University in this ballot.
As we have said before, we do understand how important levels of pay are to colleagues and we do take these views and concerns very seriously. Such pay levels are negotiated nationally.
