06-08-2004 11:23Nottingham University is facing a global academic boycott unless serious negotiations over a new pay and grading settlement begin before 20 September. The move follows Nottingham’s refusal to honour a previous commitment to negotiate a pay and grading settlement in line with that agreed between national university employers and AUT (Association of University Teachers) in March 2004.
Their latest offer introduces performance related pay for staff, would lead to reductions in career earnings of nearly £9,000 over six years for some and would remove the entitlement to belong to the national university pension scheme for others.
There are a number of things you can do to support AUT’s campaign – write to the Tines Higher stating your support, e-mail Nottingham’s Vice Chancellor Colin Campbell, telling him what you think about the pay deal. Get involved - visit the AUT website for more information www.aut.org.uk, e-mail email@example.com to pledge your support.
