Branch Meeting: Oct 31st 1pm Arts Lecture Room

All members are encouraged to attend a branch meeting next week to discuss the outcome of the pay ballot and to consider a motion (below) for submission to the upcoming HE special sector conference on pay.

Motion:
HESC notes
• the failure of JNCHES negotiating machinery to deliver pay deals that make up real terms losses in pay;
• the compressed annual timetable for JNCHES pay and equalities negotiations;
• the effect of that timetable on organising campaigns around pay and equalities, especially campaigns involving ballots on industrial action.

HESC recommends that UCU’s negotiators work with sister unions to develop multi-year pay and equalities claims in order to:
• commit the employer to making up real-terms loss in pay over several financial years;
• identify early trigger points in a cycle of negotiations running over several years to enable earlier organisation of campaigns and ballots.
