UNISON - University of Nottingham Branch

Welcome to UNISON

Pay latest (November 2022)

Our members rejected the 2022-25 pay offer in a ballot but the University has imposed it. We are talking with the University about next steps and are seeking to have the offer improved. We have asked our regional office for permission to organise an industrial action ballot. We will keep you updated.

Solidarity with the UCU branch!

The UNISON branch supports the UCU in their dispute over pay, pensions and employment conditions. 

We ask UNISON members not to cover any work that might be done by a UCU member on strike days. If you have any questions, please email unison@nottingham.ac.uk


Join UNISON... for personal support with work issues, health and safety advice, negotiating pay and conditions... strength in numbers!
