Bringing expertise to bear on policymaking

UCL strike action

The Universities and Colleges Union (UCU) has notified UCL that its members will be taking two days strike action on the 25 and 26 of May 2016, following its rejection of this year’s national pay offer after just one meeting of this year’s pay negotiations round. The employers have made a final offer of 1.1% increase in pay, with higher amounts to those on the lowest pay points. The final offer also included a commitment to undertake substantial joint work on addressing gender pay gaps as well as casual and hourly-paid working arrangements in the Higher Education Sector.

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.
