Thanks to all involved in the recent UCU ballot.
Our ballot return was 38.5 % with a 2 to 1 majority for action. As we did not get through the 50 % turnout threshold this means no action will be taken at CCCU. In the ballot last year we achieved a 27 % turnout. It is clear that there is a great deal of dissatisfaction across the sector and that this is reflected at CCCU. Our improved turnout and vote will, I believe, strengthen our negotiations at CCCU.
We will be seeking to support our colleagues taking industrial action and it is possible we will re-balloted soon.
UCU CCCU will continue to work to improve staff working conditions and defend and improve HE provision.
