UCU welcomes universities' acceptance of expert pensions report's findings

14 November 2018 | last updated: 15 November 2018

UCU has today described universities' acceptance of the findings of a Joint Expert Panel (JEP) report into pensions as a 'hugely important step' for its members.

The union said the employers' acceptance of the report demonstrated how far the union had come in the past year and that it would continue to engage with all parties to protect members' pensions.

UCU head of policy and campaigns Matt Waddup said: 'This is a hugely important step forward for UCU members. The employers' acceptance of the JEP's findings demonstrates just how far we have come since this time last year when the very idea of the guaranteed pension was under threat. UCU will continue to engage with all parties to protect our members' pensions.'
