UCEA response to UCU's confusion over partial performance
Raj Jethwa, UCEA’s Chief Executive said:
"HE institutions have a duty to their students. As such, they reject partial performance and - as UCU knows - they are legally entitled to withhold full pay or, at their discretion, a lesser amount for partial performance of duties. This is a disappointing response from UCU and will be of concern to students already facing disruption from UCU's latest action. Rather than continuing this disruption, UCU should engage constructively in this year’s (2022-23) multi-employer negotiating round which is planned to begin at the end of March.”
Note: this statement is in response to UCU's Staff warn rogue university bosses to prepare for more strike action over pay deductions
