Warm Front Reaches Glasgow

Members may be aware already that the VC at Warwick has “broken cover” in an
interesting blog.

We hear that this uncharacteristic warmth of support has also reached Glasgow,
where the University has expressed in clear terms its commitment to its staff and the
importance of a good pension.

Glasgow University goes even further, insisting that if the protection of a defined
benefits scheme necessitates increased contributions it is happy to do so. You can read their statement.

The VC at Glasgow is on the Board of Trustees of the USS Pension.

Whilst Warwick and Glasgow bask in the balmy glow of supportive principals,
Bradford UCU’s request for a position statement on pensions and contributions has
yet to yield a response – less warm front, more frosty silence.
