2016 national pay negotiations: UCU calls for industrial action

The annual pay negotiations with the recognised trade unions started last month. The negotiations are conducted on our behalf by the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA). Despite the ongoing challenges for UK universities, including significant cost increases, the challenging funding context and concerns over job security, the employers made an opening offer of a 1% increase to all spine points and signalled a willingness to discuss further joint work in the important areas of the gender pay gap and hourly-paid and casual employment.
