Subject: RE: Open letter to the Vice Chancellor from staff regarding the USS pensions dispute

Dear James

Thanks for your message.

After the first day of mediated talks, UUK asked me to join the negotiating team at ACAS.  I am the only Vice Chancellor involved in this group.

We agreed at our meeting yesterday, and reiterated today, that no member of either team would comment on any matter relating to the industrial action.  I feel bound by that and am confident that it makes the chances of achieving a satisfactory outcome to the negotiations much greater.

I am, therefore, sorry that I am unable to make any substantive response to your message.  I realise that this will be a frustrating response but believe that the imperative on all sides is to try to find a resolution.

I have copied in Paul Bridge, who leads on HE for UCU, and Chris Chatwin, the branch president.

With best wishes

Adam

Dear Adam

 

Since we last wrote to you, several more Vice Chancellors have said that their institution now accepts the September USS proposals on the level of risk. This morning, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Prof. Louise Richardson, reversed her position to accept the September proposal in response to the depth of feeling expressed by Congregation, her University’s collective sovereign body. Prof. Richardson has now committed to ‘look for ways to improve our engagement with staff so that all members of our community are able to speak and be heard on this very important issue.’

 

There is similar strength of feeling here at Sussex, evidenced by the ongoing strike, support from our students, and the now over 600 signatories to our original letter to you.

 

We understand that you have been appointed as a member of the UUK negotiating team and we fully appreciate that you will not be in a position to divulge its negotiating position.

 

However, as Vice Chancellor of Sussex, we would ask you again to clarify whether you stand by (what we understand to have been) the University’s support for de-risking. If not, will Sussex join the increasing number of institutions that accept UCU’s proposal to support a small increase in investment risk to enable the maintenance of a decent, guaranteed pension at modest costs and smaller contribution increases? We are sure that you are all too aware this is crucial to reaching an affordable solution to the dispute.

 

In the interests of transparent governance, we would also like to ask you how the Sussex decision on the acceptable level of risk was arrived at in response to the USS proposal of September 2017, and whether that decision was approved by Council prior to being communicated to UUK.

 

Also, once the dispute is resolved, will the University commit to making transparent its procedures for responding to future proposals and consultations from USS and UUK?

 

Best wishes,

James, Gurminder, and Anna

You replied on 02/03/2018 16:48.

Dear James and colleagues,

 

Thanks for the message.  

 

I would first like to address your point in regards to the UUK communications.  Hopefully many of you have seen my own emails and statements over the last few weeks, and from that have an understanding that I personally respect the right of colleagues who have chosen to strike.  Equally, I also believe those who are not striking should be treated with the same degree of respect.  

 

Many Sussex colleagues have told me that their decision to take industrial action has been driven out of a desire to protect their futures and notwithstanding the very complex ramifications of the different options on the negotiating table, I absolutely appreciate people’s views on this.

 

Having spoken with both UUK and UCU representatives, many of whom I have known for a long time, I believe there is a genuine belief they can try to find a way to work together to resolve this situation and to do so in a way that the outcome is mutually agreeable.  But in order for that to happen, we need to let the negotiating process take its course without any other public voices muddying the discussions.  We are at a critical point and these next steps of negotiation through ACAS need to play out.  It would be unhelpful and I believe, detrimental, if Vice-Chancellors (including myself) were to make pronouncements outside of this process.

 

I recognise this does not answer all of your questions and I hope that you can appreciate this is not a position that I would like to be in.  It is particularly frustrating for me, given how our community has worked to build a more collegiate environment at Sussex.

 

Although it would not be right for me to say anymore at this stage, please know that although I may not have been one of the loudest public voices, this has not been reflected in my engagement with people on both sides of this important matter.

 

With best wishes

Adam

UPDATE 28/02/18: The Vice Chancellor has replied to the open letter. We have responded asking for clarifications of the University's position on a number of crucial issues as the negotiations go to mediation by ACAS. We will copy his reply and any further correspondence here.

28 February 2018 11:02

Dear Adam

 

Thank you for your reply and statement that you are in full agreement on the need for meaningful negotiations.

 

In light of the UCU proposals as talks head to mediation by ACAS, we ask you to clarify the position of the University on the following issues:

 

1) We understand that Sussex was among the minority of employers who responded to the September 2017 consultation on the USS technical provisions saying that ‘my institution wants less risk to be taken, acknowledging the implications this might have for benefits and/or costs’. Will you please confirm this and release the University’s response to that consultation? Could you also let us know of any consultation that occurred within our institution that informed this response? For example, with Council, Senate or the University Executive Group?

 

2) Do you now accept the level of risk proposed by USS in September 2017 and accepted by the majority of institutions?  If you still do not accept this level of risk, could you please explain to USS members at Sussex why?

 

3) Will Sussex support a small increase in investment risk to enable the maintenance of a decent, guaranteed pension at modest costs and smaller contribution increases?

 

4) Lastly, you will have seen that UUK has retweeted a headline from an article in The Times newspaper, stating that ‘University lecturers are striking against their own future’. Does this represent your view? If not, will you please call on Alistair Jarvis to adopt a constructive approach to the negotiations?

 

We, and we imagine also the 583 members of Sussex staff who have signed the open letter, look forward to your responses to these urgent questions.

 

Best wishes,

James, Gurminder, and Anna

 

PS We have posted your previous reply and this email onto the open letter (available here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fHgB0izv1sLr9Vq5czWc16beFV_uPNrlfkHfvPva-0U/edit ). We will post your reply to this email and publicize it via the usual channels so that staff are able to see your response.

Subject: RE: Open letter to the Vice Chancellor from staff regarding the USS pensions dispute

Dear James and colleagues

 

Thank you for your letter. I do recognise how very difficult this situation is for everyone and appreciate why so many of you have put your names to this letter.

 

I am in full agreement with you that what we need now is meaningful negotiations so that UUK and UCU can try to work together to find a mutually acceptable solution.  Yesterday I published a statement on the University website and via my Twitter account, saying just that.  That is also why I attended a UUK meeting held last Friday to try to discuss with other Vice-Chancellors about how we could move this situation forward.  Here is the link to my statement:  http://www.sussex.ac.uk/staff/newsandevents/?id=43992.  

 

As you probably know, representatives from both employers and the union meet this afternoon and I am confident that these talks are meaningful and that both sides go into them seeking a resolution.  I am hopeful, though no more, that sufficient progress can be made in the next few days that the strikes can be suspended whilst discussions continue.

 

The executive team and myself, as well as other leaders here at Sussex, have met with MPs and politicians of all different political parties to discuss the pension and I have also maintained an on-going dialogue with UCU representatives.  I will continue to do this and to make representations on behalf of the University, and genuinely hope that we can resolve this situation quickly and with the limited amount of impact to so many of our students and staff.

 

Best wishes

Adam

Professor Adam Tickell

Vice Chancellor

27 February 2018

 

Dear Vice Chancellor

 

We are writing to you regarding the current strike action called by UCU in response to the radical and sweeping reforms to the USS pension scheme proposed by Universities UK.

 

The proposed pension cuts will have a devastating impact on the financial security and well-being of many staff here at Sussex. The downgrading of the scheme from Defined Benefit to Defined Contribution will reduce the value of our pensions by up to half, and create huge uncertainty for members as risk would be borne entirely by employees. Younger and future members of staff, many already struggling with precarious employment situations, will be especially badly affected. Not only are the UUK proposals harmful and ill-conceived, there is a strong case to say that they are unnecessary: the notional deficit rests upon contestable assumptions and there are alternative, unexplored options to ensure the viability of the scheme. We are concerned that the proposals will do irreparable damage to the international reputation of the UK higher education sector and its ability to recruit and retain staff.

 

The Universities Minister, the leaders of the Green Party, Labour Party and Liberal Democrats, and numerous MPs have called for negotiations to recommence. The leaders of 17 universities have publicly stated that they support negotiations to end the dispute, and several of them have openly questioned the need for the proposed cuts. There are serious questions to be answered about the credibility of the USS valuation, the methodology of the UUK risk survey, and the motivations of some employers in calling for an end to DB.

 

As members of Sussex staff we welcome the changes that you have initiated since becoming Vice Chancellor. They have significantly improved relations between senior management and both staff and students, and raised morale across the institution. We are concerned that the University’s position on the current dispute risks jeopardising the progress that has been achieved over the last two years. As other Vice Chancellors publicly call for negotiations, there is growing dismay among staff and students about your refusal to do the same.

 

We urge you and the senior management team at Sussex to show leadership and call for UUK to enter into meaningful negotiations with UCU, without conditions and in good faith. And we ask you to lobby UUK for a settlement that ensures a fair and decent retirement income for Sussex staff.

 

Best wishes,
