UNISON Supports the UCU Strikers!

Given the democratic support from the Students’ Union, the eve of the next round of strike action is a good time to remind everyone that UCU have the full support of the UNISON branch. Our members also voted overwhelmingly for strike action, but the national turnout was not sufficient for UNISON to call its members out on strike. If our…

UCU Strike 25th November – 4th December

UCU members are taking strike action across the University for eight working days from Monday 25th November. We support the strike! UNISON members at the University voted 78% in favour of strike action over pay, with a 51% turnout. Our members feel exasperated about real-terms pay falling over the last ten years and wanted to campaign for something better, but…

78.1% in favour of strike action on a 51.4% turnout!

This is the local result of our pay ballot. We’re pleased that the vast majority of members who voted did so to support our recommendation, that threatening strike action was the only way to get a decent pay rise. We’re also pleased to have reached the 50% turnout required for legal industrial action. Thanks very much to all our members…

2019-20 Pay Ballot Results

National Result: nearly two thirds of members who voted, voted in favour of strike action, but the turnout fell short of the 50% required for legal industrial action to take place. First of all, thanks to all our members who voted, particularly those who made the effort to call and get a new ballot paper. We really appreciate the level…

2019-20 Pay Ballot – Last chance to vote!

Since ballot papers were first posted out to home addresses on 9th September, we’ve been campaigning to make sure that all our members use their vote. We’ve send out emails, handed out newsletters and leaflets and spoken to hundreds of people because it’s important that we maximise the turnout. Without at least 50% of our members voting, on a national…

2019-20 Pay Ballot starts 9th September

If you work directly for the University, you should receive a ballot paper to your home address within days of the 9th September. Your employer’s pay offer isn’t good enough. Living costs have soared and yet most staff have been offered another pitiful pay increase of just 1.8%. So we’re asking UNISON members like you to join with colleagues and vote YES…

Pay Consultation Result

Once again, thanks to all our members who voted in the pay consultation. We asked you to either accept the “final” pay offer of 1.8% with slightly more for lower grades, or reject it, with the recommendation that you reject the offer. 82% of our branch members who voted, voted to reject the offer. 18% voted to accept. The turnout…

2019-20 Pay Consultation – Make sure you vote!

If you work directly for the University and we have your email address on our system, you should have received an email from “Jon at UNISON”. This gives you a personal link to be able to vote to accept or reject the offer, which is 1.8% or slightly more for grades 1 to 3. Please make sure you follow the…

2018-19 Pay Campaign Strike Ballot Result

Members may already have seen the result of our national postal ballot over pay. The national website has details here. 61.9% of members who voted, voted to reject the 2.0% pay offer and were prepared to take strike action, but the turnout of 31.0% falls short of what is required to take the campaign further. We are very pleased that…
