Want to know more about UCU members’ fight to defend their pension scheme?

UCU’s higher education committee says serious and sustained industrial action is required in the face of damaging proposals from the employers which would effectively destroy the USS pension scheme.

Information for those affected by the strikes: Why we’re taking action over USS

The employers want to end guaranteed pension benefits.

They say your final pension should depend on how your ‘investments’ perform and not on your contributions.

We say it’s wrong to risk our members’ futures.
