USS Ballot: Vote yes, says Sally Hunt

Dear colleague,

Your papers for the ballot over the USS dispute will be arriving now and I'm writing to urge you to use your vote and to vote yes to action.

UCU meeting, Monday 18th July: MB565, 1pm - 2pm

There will be a meeting of the UCU membership on Monday to discuss a number of extremely important issues that are affecting us both locally and nationally. These include:

* The vote on the imposed new pension arrangements.

* Restructuring and potential redundancies.

* Working relations.

* Any other issues people may raise at the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday.
