NUS Statement of Support

NUS stands ‘shoulder to shoulder’ with UCU in fight for fair pay and pensions

The National Union of Students (NUS) and UCU have issued a joint statement saying students stand ‘shoulder to shoulder’ with staff in the ongoing disputes over pay and pensions.

The statement outlines the shared commitment of both organisations to defending education, and calls on students to organise solidarity action in support of UCU members fighting attacks on pay and pensions.

The statement also asks students to contact their institution to raise concerns about the impact potential disruption may have on their studies, and put pressure on university employers to address the concerns of staff.

UCU has pledged to work closely with NUS to explain to students why the current ballots are taking place and commit to meaningful negotiations to resolve the disputes.
