Keele announces 20% pay deductions

Notification was sent to all staff at the University today, 11 November, that Keele University will deduct 20% of pay from staff participating in the assessment and marking boycott:

[…] the University has made the decision that at this time we will withhold 20% of pay at a daily rate of 1/365th of salary from the date on which you begin to take part in the industrial action short of a strike.

[…]

Staff are advised that the University has determined that employer and employee pension contributions will be maintained for staff partaking in this action for any period in which pay is withheld, and that as such all protections provided through the pension scheme will be maintained.
