Today the USS Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) agreed a joint proposal for reform of the USS, supported by both UUK and UCU. This outcome follows more than a year of discussions and negotiations to develop a viable joint proposal. The UCU also consulted their members in pre-92 institutions about this proposal with 67% voting in favour. It will now be the subject of a statutory consultation with relevant employees which will start in mid-March 2015 and last a minimum of 60 days.
