UCU Northumbria hope you had a good summer. As you may know, over the summer our employers, UCEA (the University Council for Education Administration) made us an offer on pay which applies nationally: 2%. Our own university has imposed this, but it has not been agreed locally, or nationally. For more information, see here: https://www.ucu.org.uk/he2018
In a consultative ballot in June, UCU members in HE voted to reject the employers' final below-inflation offer, and resoundingly indicated their support for industrial action in the latest campaign for pay and equality in higher education. 82% of members responding to the consultation voted to reject the offer and 65% said they were prepared to take industrial action in defence of their pay.
