UNISON launches ‘salary loss calculator’ for UK university staff ahead of September’s industrial action ballot.
Just how much have workers in higher education lost through years of no or very low pay rises?
A new online calculator now means UNISON members in universities and other higher education institutions across the UK can find out exactly how much years of a near pay freeze have cost them – ahead of next month’s industrial action ballot.
Union members will be asked to vote “yes” to strike action after earlier rejecting the employers’ offer of 1.1% for most staff.
Key dates for the ballot are: opens on 30 August and closes on 19 September. For more information click here
