Urgent Meeting Monday 17th September

URGENT – MEETING – MONDAY 17 SEPTEMBER FOR ALL UCU MEMBERS AT UEL: 1PM DOCKLANDS, ROOM EB.3.16. Report on negotiations: preparations for further action

Workloads: advice to academic staff from UCU

UCU has been, and remains, involved in lengthy negotiations with senior management regarding a Workload Allocation System. These negotiations remain unresolved. In the meantime, UEL’s approach to workloads for academic staff remains incoherent and inconsistent. This chaotic situation reflects a general crisis of workload management for academic staff across the institution. Workloads are being set without consistency, equity or transparency.
