Fresh proposals for USS funding fail to satisfy university staff


Not sure I quite follow the figures here, but it looks like the current contribution rate of 10.4% from members is acceptable to the UCU. With the 22.5% from employers, that makes a current total contribution rate of 32.9%. The highest proposed total contribution rate of the three options is 33.7%, which is only 0.8% more than the current rate. Is it that the UCU don't think it would be acceptable for members to pay an additional (pro rata) 0.25%? Or are members being asked to pay more than that? Or is it that benefits would still be cut? Holding out for "[absolutely] no detriment", seems a bold strategy.
