Bristol UCU Newsflash, 30th October 2019

1) Strike Ballot Results Imminent

Our strike ballots on USS, rising job insecurity, the gender pay gap, workload and pay closes today.

The results will likely be announced tomorrow. UCU’s Higher Education Committee then meets on Friday to decide UCU policy: subject to reaching the 50% threshold, will we be taking strike action in November? What are the next steps?

Bristol UCU branch officers meet Tuesday next week to discuss the branch’s immediate response to the ballot result. If members wish to contact branch officers or reps, details can be found on the Bristol UCU website:
