Survey of Post 92/HE 2000 branches on the REF and the national contracts

The HE Sector Conference in May resolved a survey of post-92 branches on the impact of the REF in post-92 institutions. Conference also resolved that post-92 branches would be surveyed in regards to the various threats and challenges to the post-92 contract and how UCU was responding as part of the union's defence of the national contract. This debate and the decisions also included the post-92 variant in Scotland, the HE2000 Contract.

Below you will find a short survey specific to branches in post-92 institutions as well as those in Scotland covered by HE2000. The survey is in two parts; the first part dealing with the REF and how it impacts in the post-92 and HE2000 institutions, the second part of the survey is specific to the national contracts themselves.
