Joint Negotiating Committee

Get to know the committee and the part they play in USS


The Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) has a number of responsibilities. They're able to propose rule changes themselves, and they're in charge of approving any rule changes we or the Advisory Committee may suggest.

If we find that USS needs to change contributions, the JNC decides how these should be shared between employers and members, or whether there should be a change to future benefits.
