There is just over a week to go for UCU members to vote in the consultation on the final “four fights” offer made by UCEA on behalf of higher education employers.
This is a very important e-ballot and it is crucial that all of our members use their democratic right to vote.
The “four fights” are pay, gender and race pay gaps, workload, and casualised work.
National UCU negotiators believe that the current offer represents “significant movement” on three (pay inequality, workload, and casualised work) of the four fights, but “falls short on the fullest extent of our demands”.
Our negotiators decided to consult members. Their statement can be found here.
The ballot itself contains further information from UCU negotiators on why the offer should be rejected.
All members eligible to vote should have received an email from CES (Civica Election Services) with a unique link to vote.
The ballot will close next week, at noon on Wednesday 29th July 2020.
