A letter has been published today about the importance of USS from nearly 1,000 professors.

The letter, publshed in the Times Higher Education, concludes:

'Young university staff work hard yet have endured years of pay restraint and casual contracts, while watching many at the top enjoy great rewards. Now that the USS - arguably the best aspect of the employment package - is at risk, we want to stand shoulder to shoulder with all our colleagues, and especially the next generation, to defend our profession.'
