Update to the dispute from the Chair of UCU at UEL

Picketers stand firm at UEL

We were promised a written response to the workload allocation document that was circulated to you in our previous email to which we had raised six questions of concern. We were given to understand that this would be provided by last Friday. At the end of Friday we were informed that “due to pressure of work and the tight timescale” management would not be able to provide us with their document and hoped to come back to us early this week. We reserved two times for a Monday meeting and there are times reserved for this Friday provided that we had received their latest document. It was made very clear that Monday would be an absolute deadline to prevent the Thursday strike. Even at an ASIG meeting today there was still no document provided.We hope to receive this document shortly and in anticipation of this and in order to present it to the branch; we are calling an Emergency Branch meeting at Docklands Campus at 1pm on Monday 22nd October, Room TBA.

If there are any changes to this we will inform you immediately. See you on the picket!!

For and on behalf of the negotiating committee
