UCU Industrial Action

In October 2019, members of the University of Edinburgh branch of University and Colleges Union (UCU) took part in two separate ballots which resulted in votes in favour of strike action and action short of a strike.

This action is in support of UCU’s disputes regarding the joint unions’ 2019/20 pay claim and the increase in member contributions to the Universities Superannuation Scheme.

The University has released a series of FAQs for queries staff may have regarding the upcoming industrial action.
