GUCU Motion on Pay

Passed GUCU AGM Weds 14th Oct 2015

  • The branch notes that congress clearly rejected the final offer of 1% from the employers.
  • That the HEC has decided to overturn the will of congress and capitulated over the 2015 pay bargaining round.
  • The branch agrees that we need to start to build the campaign for 2016 pay negotiations however by accepting the 1% pay offer for 2015 we undermine the formal decision-making processes of the union and send a message to the employers that they can impose minimal pay offers with no fear of redress from the UCU
  • Branch resolves to lobby the HEC to restart the dispute over the 2015 pay round as well as planning for sustained action in likely chance that the 2016 offer is less than adequate.
