January 24 spin

Odgers (University Chief Financial Officer) email on Jan 24
An email from the CFO was sent to admins, managers in departments and colleges and faculty chairs on Jan 24, to be sent to staff at their discretion. It contains a very partial description of changes to contributions and almost nothing about the negative impact of the move from defined benefit to defined contribution. Respond using this template.

UUK document sent to staff on Jan 24
