UCL-UCU: Seven Questions & Answers on the Decision by the HEC to continue action

20 March 2023

Questions & answers on the decision by the Higher Education Committee (HEC) on continuing our dispute

We are aware that there is some confusion and concern about the Higher Education Committee’s decision this Friday, 17 March to not put the employers’ latest Four Fights (pay, pay gaps, workload, and casualised contracts) out for consultation.

We have used some of the questions members are asking and provided clear answers below. There has been a significant amount of misinformation in different media channels. So it is important to set the record straight that this was not a rejection of a genuine consultation of members.

The list of questions and answers can be found here

If there is any question that you think ought to be answered, but is not answered here, please do let us know, and we will consider adding it.
