Pensions Dispute Information
This page contains information for students and staff relating to the dispute. Please scroll down for the news updates for students and staff.
The dispute between the University & College Union (UCU) and Universities UK (UUK) centres on proposed changes to the USS pension scheme.
UCU members voted by a clear majority to accept a UUK proposal to establish a Joint Expert Panel (JEP) to review pension provision. This move meant that industrial action was suspended.
