Southampton UCU General meeting – 1pm Wedneday 27 November

Dear members

Southampton UCU will be holding the next General Meeting on Wednesday  27 November from 1.00 – 2.30pm in room 45/2040 Lecture room A.

The discussion at the meeting will consider the broad theme of “Investing in Staff”.  This will include an update on the current pay claim and Action Short of a Strike and planned Strike action in support of the pay claim. We have invited a speaker from the National Executive Committee of UCU and will confirm details soon. 

As well as this pressing matter we would also like to discuss some of the issues raised by the UCU survey of staff and other activity in the University captured by the theme ‘making the university a better place to work’.  In particular we would like to explore ways of encouraging the University to invest in and value its staff including ideas on local campaigns such as ‘reclaim your lunch hour’ and more social spaces for staff.   We value your views and ideas so please come along and share them with us.

If you would like to submit any motions for consideration at the meeting, please send these to by Friday 22 November.
