What's New "#ucuRISING"



Jo Grady
@DrJoGrady
Students are skipping meals because they can’t afford to eat and missing lectures because they are working but the priority of universities is creating another well paid Directors role

This is why we are striking. This is why students back us

Something needs to give

Just when I think UCU is finally recognising APM staff as equal members...

Some people might think this is a high salary. It is. But it's a Director level role. I'm paid nowhere near this, but...

Senior remuneration figures also reveal 83 members of staff on a basic salary over £100k, up from 78 the previous year 🤑

In 2021-22 the total salary of the VC was 9.4 times greater than the median total salary of all other employees 💸

Members may also be interested to note the additional £151m paper cost of the USS ‘deficit’ contributions (p64)

Money used to service a deficit which according to USS’s own figures no longer exists🙃

.@sheffielduni is richer than it has ever been 💰

£140m net cash was generated from its operations in the year to July 2022

This figure has been steadily rising year on year, giving a more stable indication of financial health than a surplus or deficit 📈

Solidary with those on @ucu strike. Less than 5 years ago I was on strike with @ucuatqub, and conditions are no better.
Casual contracts and unfair pay are the two main reasons I left academia. The sector can afford to pay staff fairly and end casualisation #ucuRISING ✊🏼

Cards on the table, I am a mid-tier academic at a pretty good but not elite UK university. I earn eleventy-billion pounds per week but I am striking with #ucuRISING because I once ate out under Sunak's Eat Out to Help Out scheme and got a stomach ache from eating too much.
