Vote now to save USS
The consultative ballot on USS pensions closes on Wednesday 18 October on the eve of an important meeting between UCU negotiators and the employers.
Our negotiators need your support. Current proposals could cut benefits for younger staff and mean those nearer retirement may need to work longer.
A strong turnout and support for action will show the employers that we’re prepared to defend our pensions. If you work in a university covered by USS please support your negotiators and vote now as a matter of urgency to defend your pension.
