UCU have opened a ballot for strike action, and for action short of a strike, over proposed changes to the USS pension. The changes will reduce retirement benefits by between 20% and 40%.
UCU view this threat as very serious, and are calling for “sustained strike action aimed at massively disrupting lectures, classes and the administrative life of your institution”. You can read the statement accompanying the ballot on the UCU website.
If you’ve got any concerns about your pension, or want to find out more about what IWGB can do to support you, please get in touch.
