The pay dispute is over... it seems

Due to being out yesterday I didn't get to blog that the lecturers' unions have voted to take the pay offer. I'll admit I was wrong in fearing that this could go on and on. Now the next questions are how will the independent review report, and how will the UCU Left respond to the pay settlement. When the settlement was announced there was fierce internal criticism of UCU - one wag coined the term "utterly crap and useless" - but since then it's been rather muted and the ballot result has been much wider than expected.

So does this mean it's over? Well one can't really predict the independent review for a start. But let's hope there isn't any disruption to students' degrees for a good while yet...
