EU settlement scheme: joint statement by UCU and UNISON Senate House branches

UCU & UNISON

 

Following persistent lobbying by UNISON and UCU over a number of months, we were pleased to note the University of London’s announcement on 18th January that it had agreed to reimburse the £65 application fee for colleagues who are EU nationals applying for settled status under the government scheme.

A few days later, the UK government announced that the £65 application fee was being waived.

On this issue, we will now ask the University to ensure that any colleagues who have already gone through the application process as part of the pilot scheme are made aware of the fact that the Government intends to reimburse them – see https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families.
