Despite considerable objections by UCU members, the USS Pensions Scheme is changing, starting in April 2016. Further information on these changes can be found at the main UCU site. UCU is negotiating on your behalf on the latest changes to the USS Pensions Scheme
Members of the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) had been in dispute with their employers after the umbrella group, Universities UK, tabled detrimental changes to USS pension benefits in autumn 2014.
UCU members have voted to accept new proposals for their pensions and not restart a marking and assessment boycott at 69 UK institutions. Two-thirds (67.1%) of those who voted agreed to accept the new proposals.
