Universities UK (UUK) has published analysis which summarises the responses received to their consultation of employers on the recommendations of the Joint Expert Panel.
The responses, received from 127 employers, representing 94% of the scheme’s active membership, show that the vast majority of employers that responded are generally supportive of the JEP’s recommendations. However, a large number of employers – accounting for over half the scheme’s active membership – expressed important conditions and caveats to their support.
The responses to the consultation are essential for UUK; they are the foundation upon which UUK’s overall mandate is based and which will be taken forward with the scheme’s stakeholders over the coming months.
Universities UK looks forward to taking this analysis into discussions with UCU, and with the USS Trustee, over the coming weeks as a jointly agreed solution is sought.
