Inferior university pension plans must not become the norm, says UNISON

New pension schemes will leave staff struggling to plan for retirement and significantly worse off in their old age

Cambridge University is leading the way on pay, says UNISON

Responding to the announcement today (Wednesday) that the University of Cambridge is to seek formal accreditation as a real living wage employer,
UNISON’s head of higher education Donna Rowe-Merriman said: “Cambridge University’s commitment to give its lowest paid staff a fair wage is a move that urgently needs to be replicated in other universities across the UK. There is no place for low pay in higher education.
