USS Dispute: Open meeting 23rd January
Cambridge UCU invites you to join us for an open meeting to discuss
the current USS ballot and to mention any issues you would like us to
raise at the Pensions Briefing on 28th January. Please indicate
USS Ballot, 16th to 26th January 2015
The UCU is currently holding a
ballot on a new offer from the employers in the pensions negotiation.
The Cambridge LA's Executive will meet on Tuesday lunchtime to discuss
this offer, and to consider what response it would be appropriate for it
to make. Its response will probably include some form of email to members
later on Tuesday.
The assessment boycott remains suspended until the results of this
ballot are known.
Assessment Boycott Suspended, 20th November
Sally Hunt, the General Secretary of the UCU,
that the assessment boycott had been suspended until at least the 15th January
as negotiations are continuing. The employers agreed not to dock any pay
from those who had taken part in this brief action.
The LA Executive currently has vacancies.
Anyone interested in being co-opted should contact one of the current
members for more information.
