All out for USS

It's not too late! Universities UK can still commit to meaningful negotiations over pensions and end the strike action.

Special HE sector conference - pensions dispute, February 2015

Decision-making conference called for 24 February 2015.

Following requests from at least 20 HE branch quorate general meetings, a special meeting of the HE sector conference was convened for Tuesday 24 February. See the calling notice, circular UCU/628, here.

The business of this conference is to debate the campaigns to defend pensions in HE, and to defend the capacity of the UCU to call industrial action short of a strike as part of those campaigns.

The agenda, motions and amendments submitted for debate at the conference can be found here. The first report of the Conference Business Committee can be found below (UCU/632).
