Following communication in November 2014 we can update students that continued negotiations between Universities UK and the University and College Union (UCU) have produced a potential joint proposal for reform of the USS pension scheme. UCU have taken the decision to extend the suspension of industrial action whilst they consult their members on the joint proposal. The next Joint Negotiating Committee meeting is scheduled for Thursday 29 January and it is intended that a final decision on a scheme reform proposal will be made at that meeting, which will then be the subject of a statutory consultation. We will keep you informed of future developments.
For a background to the industrial action and frequently asked questions, please visit the Student Enquiry Centre website.
