TweetDeck : This is not the deal that I have put my research and my students' educations on hold for. This is not the deal that I stood outside for hours in a blizzard for. This is NOT the deal we have been striking for.

iPhone : Perhaps most shameful: @UCU will "encourage its members to prioritise the rescheduling of teaching". That is, a TRADE UNION will tell members to make up work LOST DUE TO A STRIKE, for which they have had their WAGES DOCKED.

iPhone : The scale of the betrayal here is remarkable. @UCU proposes
- lower DB threshold from £55k to £42k
- accrual rate worsens: 1/75th to 1/85th
- increased contributions
all to address a deficit WHICH DOES NOT EXIST!

Twitter Web Client : The UCU backing down at the moment their power is strongest is a slap in the face to union members in higher ed here in Australia, as well as in the UK. Unions should facilitate action not suppress it. If their leaders won't, let them make way for those who will #NoCapitulation
