UCEA has continued to meet with the trade unions regularly in a bid to reach an agreement for the HE pay negotiating round for 2024-25. While New JNCHES negotiations are usually across three scheduled meetings, this round has seen the employers and trade unions meet over six times through New JNCHES, as well as numerous other meetings. The trade unions’ committees are currently meeting individually and consulting accordingly. The UCEA Board will make a final decision the week beginning 10 June; UCEA will provide an update by the end of that week.
