What would a pay rise mean to you?

Campus Trade Unions want to hear from you!

All staff have been working hard during the pandemic, keeping campus safe, supporting current students and recruiting more. Some of us have worked on Campus throughout the last year whilst others have worked from home in sometimes challenging work environments. All of us have adapted to changes in how we work and we continue to work effectively and flexibly as more staff and students begin their return to campus. Behind the scenes, we’ve steered the University through difficult times. 

Thanks to us, the University’s finances are stable, but where is our recognition?

Since 2009, our pay has declined by 17.6% when measured against RPI. The cost of living is rising, so why isn’t our pay?

Despite our hard work and the rising cost of living, University Vice Chancellors across the country refused to give their staff a pay rise this academic year (2020/21). 

We’d like to hear from you about your thoughts on this and what a pay rise would mean to you. Please complete our short survey and share with your colleagues (both union members and non-members): https://forms.gle/dpRPPbskCHvvgyik8 

Negotiations are still ongoing for 2021/2022’s pay offer. Together, we can achieve the pay rise we deserve.
