Update on HE pay, from Sally Hunt

Jun 3rd, 2014 | By | Category: News

Dear member,

As you may have heard from your Branch, the result of the recent ballot on the ‘full and final’ pay offer made by the HE employers was as follows:

A total of 30,141 valid votes were counted, giving a turnout of 52.6 percent.

The eligible votes were cast as follows:
To accept the offer and call off the marking boycott: 25,239 (83.7 percent)
To reject the offer and commence the marking boycott at the earliest opportunity possible: 4,902 (16.3 percent)

A breakdown of the voting in each institution is here:  http://www.ucu.org.uk?mediaid=6669

Arising from this overwhelming result, the Higher Education Committee has agreed to inform the employers we accept the full and final offer of 2 percent made for the 2014/15 negotiations and the pay dispute carried over from 2013 is now resolved. The proposed marking boycott due to start on 6 May was, therefore, cancelled and members should work normally.

Thank you for you support during the dispute and for taking part in the ballot in such great numbers.

Sally Hunt
UCU general secretary
