UCU has confirmed that strike ballots will open at UK universities on Monday in rows over USS pensions and pay, workloads, casualisation and equality.

The union's higher education committee (HEC) met today (Friday) and confirmed the timetable for a ballot of 69 institutions over USS pensions and also for a pay, workloads, casualisation and equality ballot that will run at 147 institutions at the same time.

The ballots will run from Monday 9 September to Wednesday 30 October and HEC will meet to consider the results on Friday 1 November. The ballots will be disaggregated so each institution will be polled separately.
