Thank you to everyone who took part in our consultation over the 1% pay offer – the results are now in!
62% voted to reject the pay offer. Comments included: “We’ve accepted below inflation rises for too long now” and “We need to fight this, I would strike”.
38% voted to accept the offer, with comments including “In the current climate, 1% sounds good”.
However the turnout was relatively low, with only about 10% of members taking part.
We’ll be submitting the results of our consultation to the Higher Education Service Group Executive, who will take a decision regarding any action in the light of feedback they received from around the sector.
