Higher Education UNISON ballot result

Congratulations to activists and officials in UNISON's Higher Education Service Group, where it was today announced that members have voted in favour of strike action against a miserly 1% offer (http://maxwatsonunison.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/higher-education-ballot-result.html?m=1).

The margin of the "yes" vote (54.4%) may not be overwhelming but it is decisive, and the Service Group Executive (SGE) will now decide on further action next week taking into account the results of ballots of members of other unions, notably UCU whose ballot closes on Thursday (http://www.ucu.org.uk/6760).

The Higher Education (HE) SGE has, in recent years, shown brave and determined leadership which has set a positive example to the wider union.
