Higher education unions have submitted a joint pay claim for 2015-16 to the national employers' organisation, the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA).
The claim has been submitted by UNISON, UCU, Unite, GMB and EiS and covers two main areas - pay and pay-related equality matters - which the unions want to negotiate concurrently.
The pay claim deals with key issues that have an impact on UNISON members working on university campuses across the UK, such as the rising costs of living for higher-education workers.

Although it's taken a little while, the branch has finally got its very own marching banner. You'll have seen banners at various rallies and demonstrations, and many branches have their own, but we didn't have one - that is until now!
The banner is printed with the UNISON logo and the branch name - see if you can spot the mortar board too. The final banner was based on a design by Gavin Innes who won a competition that we held a while ago, and partly funded by a generous donation from a retired member.
We hope to get to use it soon - perhaps at this year's May Day march down Union Street!
The local branch is setting up regular lunchtime UNISON information stands at RGU for you to come along and have a chat, find out about membership benefits – or direct your non-union colleagues to, if they want more information.
We’ll then run them in different buildings on a monthly schedule:
- First Wednesday of the month: Riverside East foyer
- Second Wednesday of the month: Faculty of Health & Social Care foyer
- Third Wednesday of the month: Aberdeen Business School foyer
Just come along and say hi!
