Joint statement from the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA), representing institutions on the pay and working conditions dispute, and from Universities UK (UUK) which represents employers on USS, as the University and College Union (UCU) consults its members on progress on both disputes:
“We know the Acas terms of reference and the joint UCU and UUK statement on USS are now out for consultation with UCU members. We acknowledge that these consultations are internal union matters and we fully respect UCU’s decision-making processes.
“So much positive progress has been made in both disputes and the timescale for key USS decisions has been set.
“We hope UCU members will ‘note’ the progress made, and we look forward to continuing and progressing the good work that has already taken place over the coming months.”
