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.
