Ballot for Industrial Action by the UCU Autumn 2021

From 18 October - 4 November 2021 the University and College Union (UCU) balloted members to ask if they would be willing to take industrial action over the USS pension and pay and conditions.

At the University of Exeter, the turnout for the USS pension ballot was 47% and the turnout for the pay and conditions ballot was 47.2% - both are below the legally required 50% minimum threshold needed to support strike action and/or action short of a strike.

On the basis of this outcome, no industrial action will be taken at Exeter in relation to either the USS pension or the pay and conditions ballots, however, we will keep you informed of any further developments.
