September, 2017:

INDUSTRIAL ACTION BALLOT – PLEASE USE YOUR VOTE

Monday  11th September  was a very significant date – and a sad day for the university. It was the final closing date that academics in the affected areas could put in applications for Voluntary Severance. 
It is also  is also the date when our ballot for industrial action opened. Look out for your ballot paper arriving  (Note this is a postal vote (hardcopy) in accordance with trade union  legislation).
Please support your colleagues and protect your own future  by voting immediately and voting  in support of industrial action. Please encourage your colleagues to vote – and to join UCU if they are not yet members. A high turn-out and a strong vote in favour of industrial action will force the university Senior Leadership Team to return to the negotiating table, to maintain the collegial principles which are integral to a university, and to develop a long-term plan to meet its goals  without recourse to compulsory redundancies.
