Universities UK (UUK) has commented on the University and College Union (UCU) proposal to reform the USS pension scheme.
The USS Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) agreed on 19 December to defer until 23 January 2018 a decision on the proposed reform of USS benefits.
UUK has published further information relating to the current proposals for changes to the USS pension scheme as a result of the 2017 valuation.
You can now download the presentation slides from the immigration information session held in November, which discussed the implications of the Brexit vote.
The negotiating timetable on USS benefit reform is being extended, with a final Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) decision now anticipated on 18 December.
If you are a member of UCU and are being asked to vote, we would ask you to consider these points about the UCU’s ballot.
The 2017 USS valuation process is moving forward. At JNC on 13 November, a proposal was put forward by UUK on behalf of higher education sector employers, including the University of Leeds.
