  1. USS under attack: vote YES to defend pensions
    Please vote in the UCU e-ballot. We’re asking if members would be prepared to take industrial action, to give us the pressure we need in negotiations. The current scheme benefit levels require contributions some 6.6% of pay higher than at present. More here.  UCU national office sent out an email with your personal voting link last week.  If you cannot find it in your inbox, please check the junk folder as UCU emails sometimes get diverted. If you still cannot find it, you can request another copy here. The ballot closes on 18 October.
