EUCU (AGM) Branch Motion
Should we be reopening at all? It is sensible to plan an online welcome week and online teaching in the first two weeks of term along with restrictions of social activities among students where feasible. Details of testing and monitoring regimes should be determined in advance of campus opening, subject to consultation with UCU and other recognised trade unions.
The decisions to provide face-to-face (F2F) activity have been made without the union input. While we are waiting for the University's response on the UCU 5 tests, we are very keen to encourage all members to get actively involved in thinking and formulating the branch's approach based on the excellent Independent SAGE report, USS Brief and central UCU arguments. Please get in touch.
