It seems that the UCU (new name for the merged AUT and NATFHE) are now actually balloting their members on the pay offer offered them by the UCEA. Thus the marking/exam boycott will be suspended from midnight. It may come back if the members vote against the 13.1% offer, but for now, the unionised lecturers are obliged to do the work they haven't been doing for the last few months. Personally, I reckon the ballot will go for taking the offer. Slightly lower than what the union would have been happy with, but high enough so that both sides can accept this as a fair deal.
I'm surprised no one (other than the RaW News blog) has blogged about this yet.
