Warwick UCU EU Open Meeting Follow Up Letter to VC
NUS and UCU joint national demonstration in central London, Saturday 19 November.
When is a victory not a victory?
In September, the University announced that it was doing away with Spinal Point 3 on the pay scale so that all directly-employed staff received, at least, the £8.25 advocated by the Living Wage Foundation. The casual observer might think this was great achievement which the trade unions should have celebrated. Well, not quite.
UCU supports NUS’s right to boycott the National Student Survey.
The National Union of Students has now confirmed that it will be organising an all-out boycott of the National Student Survey (NSS).
Hourly Paid Teachers at Warwick – What’s going on?
Warwick University is one of the HE institutions in the country which perhaps relies most heavily on the work of casualised staff to carry out core teaching – 70% according to recent UCU figures.
We have submitted a statement to the task and finish group which includes a demand that if there is to be any change to lecture capture policy.
UCU relies on volunteers to run the branch and fulfil the various functions. We need to boost our numbers of active caseworkers as a top priority.
There will be a caseworker training session on Monday 28 November between 13:00 and 15:00 in room 0.011 Scarman Road. Lunch will be provided.
