Part of our agreement to end our strike last Autumn was on the basis that our there would be meaningful negotiations over a consolidated pay rise after the Easter break. These have started.
UCU members have been balloted nationally to see if they are willing to take part in industrial action to pursue this year’s 10% claim. Around 50 branches will be moving to an Industrial action ballot in preparation of taking action in the new academic year.
UCU CCCG agreed not to be a part of this national ballot because we want to give negotiations at CCCG a chance to succeed. Whilst we are fully committed to making these negotiations a success, we are calling upon you to make clear in UCU’s pay consultative survey ballot if you agree to take part in industrial action in the next academic year if management fail to offer a real pay award and instead impose another pay cut.
All of the above will be discussed at branch meetings across the group. Please do all you can to attend and have your say.
