Industrial Action Ballot

Dear Higher Education Members,

After our members voted overwhelmingly to reject the inadequate 1.1%, we are now asking you to vote in the industrial action ballot and have your say in higher education pay! Many local branches have been highlighting the huge increases in Vice Chancellor pay, the increasing numbers of those paid over £100,000 and the large surpluses across the sector. If you haven’t used it yet, check out this map and compare the different data across Universities:

We believe  it’s important that Universities invest in their staff as well in bricks and mortar!
