Higher education pay dispute – Update
Unite members working in universities across the UK have voted against industrial action. Unite has informed the employers of the result and notified them that the dispute over this year’s pay is closed.
While members have indicated they are not willing to take action at this stage the fight for fair pay goes on. Over the coming days your Unite representatives will be discussing the next steps in the campaign and how we can achieve fair pay in the following years’ pay rounds.
