UCU Branch Concerns and Questions about the Reopening of University of Exeter’s Campuses

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.

Formal claim for collective agreement: policy for the recording of teaching and learning activities

In the absence of responses and without a frame for negotiations before the start of the new academic year, and after consultation with the Branch Committee and UCU, we are formally lodging a formal claim for a collective agreement on a policy for the recording of teaching and learning activities. We look forward to a speedy response from HR.
