What is this dispute about?
Pay inequality is a huge issue for the HE sector. UCU national figures show that in HE, the pay gap between Black and white staff is 17%. The disability pay gap is 9%. The mean gender pay gap is 15.1% and at the current rate of change it will not be closed for another 22 years. This is pay discrimination and is illegal. UCU are simply asking for time-specific agreements on closing these gaps.
