Union action 2018

During February and March 2018 the higher education trade union, University and College Union (UCU), carried out industrial action at Sussex and more than 60 other universities in a national dispute over the future of Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). The USS is one of a range of pension schemes available to University staff.

In April, UCU members voted in a ballot to accept a proposal put forward in March. As such this suspended a second wave of industrial action, and action short of a strike.
