Uni staff get CPI to undercut their pensions while students get RPI on their loans to impoverish them. Anyone would think the government wants to destroy higher education...

Another pay settlement of half-inflation, unlike HE executives. Reminder: last above-inflation HE pay settlement was 2008.

Interesting. It seems this has been more widely circulated now, so may have been designed for public consumption, but some encouraging signs. Implies the current valuation CAN be affected & that the process has USS and tPR support. Nothing sinister re objectives hinted, I think?

Yes, first came the horror at the human consequences of this, and that horror remains. Then comes the realization that a manager Unilaterally decided to destroy an archive of national significance, and no processes or checks stopped this.

I remember the Stephen Lawrence murder, the Macpherson report, and the soul-searching that followed. To now see this systemic racism aimed at black British people turns my stomach.

Right, UCU types, who thinks there's mileage in a workload campaign using old, or old-style trade union posters for 8 hour working day and 5 day working weeks, emphasising these are rights workers should have had for a long time?

And if we need to ballot again to get a new mandate, that's what we'll do.

UCU "members should work normally", but if your "normal" involves late nights and no weekends then it's time for a serious rethink. Continue to work to contract. Say "no" more. Overwork upholds an unfair system, stacked against those who cannot work every hour of the day.
