UCU General Meeting - Monday 23 September 2019

All members are invited to attend the forthcoming UCU General Meeting which will take place on Monday 23 September 2019 at 1-2pm in the Welcome Centre Lecture Theatre 4.

In addition to discussing the Industrial Action USS and HE Pay Ballot, members are invited to consider the following draft policy on Fixed Term & Casual Contracts which branch negotiators have been pushing management for over the last eight years.

We think the draft policy represents a huge step forward for anti-casualisation at Lancaster, but we want your feedback on whether you think UCU should fully endorse the draft policy.

As a democratic, member-led organisation, we need your input and participation and look forward to seeing you at the forthcoming General Meeting.
