UNISON, UCU and UNITE the Union are taking joint strike action on the 31st October throughout the UK and in the North West’s 13 Universities.
Over 4.000 low paid staff are currently paid below the Living Wage. Over half of Vice Chancellors earn over £242.000. In the last 4 years, pay in real terms has fallen by almost 15% for most support staff in HE which has eroded living standards for thousands of our members. This year’s offer of 1% is inadequate and the time has come to take action for fair pay.
Please support members in HE by signing the petition. Click here

Liverpool: University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool Hope University
