Update on USS negotiations

As a result of extended discussions leading up to the USS joint negotiating committee (JNC) today, both sides have agreed to extend the timetable for negotiations with a view to reaching agreement if at all possible.

We have confirmed we will work to a timetable which concludes on 23 January 2018 at another JNC. I would like to place on record my thanks to all members of the union's negotiating team who have remained united in representing members' interests during these intensive talks.

UCU's ballot for industrial action closes on 19 January 2018.

It is more important than ever that you participate in order to give us as strong a mandate as possible. If you have not already done so, please use your vote.

Thank you for your continued support.
