Update on national pay negotiations

Update on national pay negotiations

UCEA and UCU are taking part in talks.

As you may be aware, UCEA and UCU have agreed to a period of intensive negotiations with regard to pay, with the first of a series of meetings due to take place tomorrow. As this update from UCEA makes clear, UCEA has a mandate from employers to bring forward negotiations on the 2023/24 New JNCHES pay round, but no mandate to re-open the 2022/23 pay round.

In a jointly agreed statement between UCEA and Trade Unions it was noted that ‘whilst employers view the 2022-23 round as closed, employers also recognise that the unions do not regard the 2022-23 round as concluded and would want any settlement of 2023-24 to take account of this’.

The statement also says that ‘Both sides agree to de-escalate the dispute during the above described intense period of negotiations, including the impact of and employer responses to ASOS’ and that ‘in these meetings all parties will strive to achieve a conclusion to the 2023-24 pay round, and commit to a number of meetings for further negotiation, in relation to the other aspects of the unions’ claim’.

Recognising the cost-of-living pressures facing staff, the University welcomes these developments in the national pay negotiations and hopes that the talks lead to agreement.

Best wishes
