UCU, Unite, UNISON members – don’t forget to submit your ballot papers

Staff working in Universities have had enough of below inflation pay rises and being taken for granted. Workload demands have continually increased whilst the value of our pay is falling. For years universities have prioritised investing in buildings over investing in staff – this has to change.

It’s time that members stopped giving more for less!

Wherever you work, whichever union you’re in, stand up for better pay. The higher education unions on campus; UCU, UNISON and Unite are balloting their members for strike action.  This is a national ballot.

We know that when we work together we’re stronger. We all have one message – our members in higher education deserve better.

We’re calling on Universities to make a better offer. To get this we need to stand together.

We’re asking you to say YES to strike action so that we can send a strong and united message to the employers.

Vote YES in the ballot. Make sure your voice is heard. Make sure that all of your colleagues are in a union so that everyone in HE has their say on pay.

The ballot closes 30th October (UCU/UNISON) or 31st October (Unite)
