Annual General Meeting – Wednesday 22 June at 12:00 pm

Your local UCU branch is holding its Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 22 June at 12:00 pm via Zoom and the link for this meeting will be sent out to members nearer the time, along with an agenda.   

VC Open Letter – please sign

Please sign the open letter below which is open to all staff, students, UCU members and non UCU members. 

We are writing to share an Open Letter to the VC, written in response to management failures on pay and pensions. Without these failures being addressed, ongoing industrial action will occur.

The Letter addresses failings in the VC’s consultation response on USS (with a longer explanation in footnote 2), and lack of progress on the four fights issues.
Please add your name and share widely to all colleagues (UCU members and non-members) and students. We are all affected by industrial action, and should stand united. We think that parallel Open Letters will shortly be in motion at other universities, drawing on our template.
In 2018, a similar Open Letter at York generated around 1,500 signatures, and was followed by a negotiated resolution to industrial action. We hope for similar achievements this time. Add your name on this googleform, which is embedded in the Open Letter.
