Portfolio Model – UCU Advice to Members

     Your workload for 2011-12 should already have been agreed using AWAM and attempts to increase workload over the maximum allowed should be resisted forcefully. If you have not already agreed your workload you are advised to do so using the AWAM: UCU support is available to help with this. UCU recommends that you should not engage with the Portfolio model. Read on to see details of UCU help and Grievance forms (more…)



I am writing to ask you to take strike action on 30 November, 2011 in support of your union.

We are now, at last, engaged in detailed discussions on the future of the Teachers Pension Scheme (TPS) and now have talks on the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). But in neither case has sufficient progress been made to enable us to call off the proposed strike action.
