Update on current dispute

Negotiations are continuing and on Wednesday the 6th of June, UCU Branch negotiators and the UCU Regional Official met with management for a seventh time. The issue that is posing the most difficulty and requiring detailed attention is Workload Allocation. Discussions continue and we are scheduled to meet again next Thursday the 14th of June. This meeting will be pivotal. We remain hopeful of a satisfactory resolution. We will send a further report following that meeting so please check your email regularly for that report and any subsequent notice of a Branch Meeting.
