Union national executive voted to join second national coordinated strike against government pension proposals


The national executive of UCU has voted to join four other unions in next month’s coordinated strike action against proposed cuts to public sector pensions.

It means the national strike planned for 10th May will involve union members working in the NHS, civil service and Royal Fleet Auxiliary as well universIties and FE colleges.

The UCU executive voted 23 to 9 to call out all  members of the TPS scheme nationally. The decision covers members working in further education and staff at the ‘Post-92’, or new universities.

The union last month took part in a limited one-day pensions strike in London, with NUT.
