UCUS Referendum Manifesto : Image of the front of the UCU Referendum ManifestoManifesto for Scotland's Referendum

UCU Scotland's manifesto for Scotland's Referendum calls on all sides of the constitutional debate to outline their commitment to Scotland's universities.

UCU is calling on all sides to publicly support adequate funding for Scotland's universities, to back Scotland's four-year honours degrees and to reject student tuition fees.

The union also wants Scotland's diverse university sector to continue to have the freedom to determine its own teaching and research and reiterated its calls for an end to the use of exploitative zero-hours contracts.

There are some very important questions to be answered over the next eleven months before Scotland votes in the historic referendum. UCU looks forward to debating the key issues with all sides and encouraging our members to get involved in the discussion.
