USS pension action suspended

At an HE Sector Conference on 31 January 2012,  UCU delegates backed the recommendation of their national negotiators to suspend the current work-to-contract in return for the employers’ agreement to negotiations about USS.  Further details can be found in circular UCUHE134


The industrial action is suspended from 15 February to 18 June.


This will allow time for negotiations to take place and be reported to the UCU Conference which takes place early June.  I would like to say a big thank you to all members who have participated in the Work to Contract.  Our negotiators are hopeful that there may now be progress on the issues which most concern us about the changes to USS.
