UNISON Senate House branch meeting
Speaker: Max Watson, UNISON NEC
Thursday 9th August 2012
1-2pm, Woburn Room, Senate House
In September 2012 all HE Unison members will be balloted over the 2012 pay claim. The unions have asked for a 7% increase on all pay points. In return the employers have offered a final pay offer of 1% - effectively a pay cut since inflation was 3% in the year up to April 2012.
Living costs have increased by over 12% over the last four years. In that same period, pay increases have been worth 2.4% of pay for many staff.
Our employers admitted to HEFCE last year that staff costs were at an all time low while reporting strong surpluses at most institutions. Our claim for 7%, which would only begin to make up for the below inflation wage increases of the last few years, is fair and reasonable.
This is your chance to hear more about the pay claim and to have your say before the ballot opens. Members and non-members are welcome.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Refreshments will be provided.
