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 was 56%.
Nationally, the vote was 67% to reject the offer, on a 40% turnout.
The leading body of Higher Education members in UNISON met yesterday and agreed to go to a full postal ballot later in the year. We’ll be lodging a dispute with UCEA, the employers’ organisation and running a ballot at the same time as UCU in September/October. More details in our July newsletter, out soon.
