Expected announcement from UCU on industrial action

The University and College Union (UCU) is expected to announce an update on planned industrial action later today – Friday 12 November.

Following the results of recent ballots by the University and College Union (UCU) that provided a mandate for industrial action at some universities, including Leeds, UCU’s Higher Educations Committee is expected to meet today (Friday 12 November) to decide next steps, including the nature and timing of any action

The ballot results at Leeds provided a mandate for industrial action – strike and action short of a strike – related to disputes over proposed changes to USS pension, and pay and other related issues.

We will share a further update on Monday 15 November following the announcement of UCU’s decision on its next steps.
