UNISON is calling for strike action over the poor pay offer from higher education employers.
The higher education employers’ offer of a one-year pay deal of 2% for most people or £425 (up to 2.7%), whichever is the greater, simply isn’t enough. Living costs are continuing to rise; interest rates have increased; mortgage repayments will increase; and energy suppliers will increase their prices this autumn.
VOTE YES for strike action
UNISON recommends that you vote for strike action because 2% is below inflation and we want UNISON members’ pay to reflect your valuable contribution to higher education. Every price rise bites into your wage packet. But the employers aren’t going to change their minds unless we force their hand. How much has your pay fallen?
