London Weighting at the University of London has been frozen at £2,134 for the last 22 years…
…This is the lowest London Weighting of all the London HE institutions.
Set across a backdrop of increasing costs of living, pay rises that fail to keep up with inflation, higher rent and travel costs in London than the rest of the UK and staff struggling to maintain their standards of living, your unions think this is unacceptable.
UNISON and UCU will be submitting a London Weighting claim to the University of London asking them to increase your London weighting and we need your support and ideas.
Come to a joint UCU and UNISON members meeting on 2nd July at 13.00-14.00 Gordon Room G34 Senate House and let us know what you think. Refreshments will be provided.
What affect does the current weighting have on your ability to live in London? Does it effect staff morale and retention? Should it be in line with the rest of the public sector and other London universities?
UCL’s London Weighting is £2862, Birkbeck’s London weighting is £3006, and the University of Greenwich’s London Weighting is £4365. What should the University of London’s London Weighting be? Come and give your views and get involved in supporting this campaign.
