I'm signing because it seems that Galvin and Eastwood are the major stumbling block stopping this part of the dispute being resolved.

UCU and UUK agreed on creating a JEP, they agreed to its report's recommencations - USS is the problem. HWU, pull your weight to work towards positive change at USS.

Our values must underpin putting colleagues at the heart of everything we do. Therefore, HWU should take a public stance on this matter so we can have a resolution.

I’d like the dispute to be settled. I’ve now been on strike on two occasions and the JEP recommendations have not been implemented. This is unacceptable, and the current position is unfair on staff who need to know that there will be a reasonable pension to live on when they retire, after many years of service to their organisation. Issues of casualisation, gender and race pay gap also need serious urgent action.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Galvin and Eastwood are not acting in the members or the majority of employers interests and must go to allow any chance of a settlement to this dispute. Go Now!

Time to sort this out once and for all. Time to put staff right at the heart of everything Heriot-Watt do.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm signing because I, too, cannot understand how Galvin and Eastwood can simply ignore a report agreed by all the members of the Joint Expert Panel, that is those nominated by both the union and the employers, and consistently fail to engage with the issues.
