Tory minimum service levels consultation a 'spiteful attack on workers everywhere'

2 October 2023

Responding to the government's announcement that it will consult on minimum service level, UCU general secretary Jo Grady said: ''This is a spiteful attack on workers everywhere from a party that has run out of options and will soon be run out of office. We will not stand by while Tory MPs try to force our members to cross their own picket lines.

'The recent strike action on campus is a direct result of the market-driven dogma of successive Tory governments. They have created funding inequalities across the sector and encouraged university leaders to act as intransigent CEOs. 

'UCU will use every means at our disposal to fight these threats to our fundamental freedoms alongside the whole union movement.'
