Last week’s Higher Education Sector Conference voted for an immediate strike ballot in defence of USS pensions and also over the 4Fights, and also for these disputes to be coordinated together.

Our union is now on an emergency campaign footing. With several disputes already taking place over jobs and pay in HE, branches across the four regions must now prepare for strike ballots that bring together pre- and post-92 branches across the HE sector. The same issues are central to disputes across the union. Members in 15 Further Education Colleges are due to begin strike action on 28th September over pay, workloads and redundancies.

We have called this meeting to help provide us with the tools and examples we need to win. Now more than ever, we need to draw together the issues and build solidarity for UCU branches taking action now. Victories in these disputes can only help win the ballots to come over USS and the 4Fights.
