UCU demands employers bring an end to disruption as A-level and BTEC results are published

17 August 2023

UCU congratulated students and their teachers on this year's A-level and BTEC results, but called on employers to settle the current university dispute so as not to disrupt students even further.

UCU general secretary Jo Grady said: 'Today's results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and staff, all of whom should be congratulated. Students heading to university should now be looking forward to freshers' week and the next big milestone in their lives. But those celebrating will have heard that the start of term may be hit with strike action.  

'Vice-chancellors need to settle the dispute, stop the disruption on campus and allow staff to get back to doing what they know and love best. They urgently need to get back round the negotiating table and make staff a fair offer.'
