UNISON is recommending that members vote ‘YES’ to take strike action over pay in Higher Education. We believe it is the only way to improve the current pay offer of 1%. The Ballot runs from 18th September to 8th October 2013.
Theresa Griffin, UNISON North West lead for Higher Education said:
“It is time that universities recognised the invaluable work that UNISON members do. They deserve a living wage and the removal of zero hours contracts.”
“While vice-chancellor pay goes through the roof our members have been offered a paltry 1% – a real terms cut in pay. Pay has already fallen by 13% over the last four years.”
“It’s really important that members use their vote in this ballot to send a clear message
to employers that enough is enough and vote ‘YES’ to take strike action over pay .”
