USS has confirmed UCU pensions proposals are implementable

10 February 2022

UCU general secretary Jo Grady said today that USS has now officially confirmed that UCU's proposals to protect benefits in return for slightly higher employer and member contributions are capable of implementation.

She reported: 'I wrote today to Alistair Jarvis, chief executive of Universities UK (who represent employers across the table from us in this dispute) urging him to consult immediately with employers to avert, or at least mitigate, the strike action. 

'I am pleased to say that he has written back to confirm that UUK will formally consult employers on our proposals.'
