Industrial action update

On Monday UUK met with UCU representatives in talks facilitated by ACAS.

Both sides had the opportunity to convey their views to ACAS. A number of outcomes were agreed by both parties and they are expected to meet again on Wednesday to continue the discussions. UUK have made clear that they are available to meet at any time and have repeated the request for UCU to suspend strike action. UCU have declined the request.

As we said in our last update we are open to considering credible and affordable solutions to this problem as part of a national discussion. So we are pleased that a dialogue, independently facilitated by ACAS, has commenced. It is important for students, universities and their members that an acceptable solution is found.
