The Results of the Ballot are here

Oct 23rd, 2018 | By | Category: News

Dear colleague

The results of the ballot are now available here.

You will see that despite the enormous efforts made by the Union – with branches and UCU staff working hand in hand – very few institutions have achieved the 50% turnout required by the law before industrial action is possible.

It is very frustrating that while overall the turnout is the highest we have seen in UCU for a national pay ballot in this sector, this is not enough to take action in the vast majority of institutions.

While we all know the law is unfair, we also know that without a high turnout we cannot turn the anger about the treatment of staff into tangible action so I would like to thank those of you who voted and who worked to increase the turnout for your support.

The results will now be considered by the Union and we will be in touch with further information in due course.

Until such time as we are advised otherwise, please note that our current dispute remains on.

Matt Waddup
UCU national head of policy and campaigns
