Following a ballot result announced on Monday 22nd January where UCU members overwhelmingly backed strike action, UCU will now firm up the start dates for a series strikes at 61 universities including UCL planned for February onwards.  

The dispute relates to proposed changes to the USS Pension Scheme which is facing alarming proposals for the future, effectively ending USS as we know it.

Independent financial experts First Actuarial have produced a report for UCU that shows the new pension proposals could see over £200k slashed off a new lecturer's pension over the course of their retirement.

You can read Sally Hunt's commentary on the UCU website and find further information on our USS Pension campaign pages.
