Strike for USS

UCU’s higher education committee has agreed to launch an industrial action ballot in the dispute over the future of USS. They have said serious and sustained industrial action is required in the face of damaging proposals from the employers which would effectively destroy the pension scheme.

Your pension is under attack

  • The employers want to end guaranteed pension benefits.
  • They say your final pension should depend on how your ‘investments’ perform and not on your contributions.
  • We say it’s wrong to risk our members’ futures.

The postal strike ballot opens on Wednesday 29 November. Keep an eye out for your voting envelope over the coming days. If it doesn’t arrive a form to request a duplicate will be made available from 4 December.
