Successful action last thursday

Following the successful UCU action of last Thursday, the UEL management team have agreed to facilitate a meeting this week with the UCU negotiating team and agreed that the management team for this meeting will include a number of Deans.  In respect of this concession the UCU negotiating team requested that the branch suspend the strike action planned for Tuesday 23rd October but also requested that, in case the negotiations do not prove fruitful, members volunteer for picket duty for the strike planned for Monday 29th October. At today’s meeting of the UCU branch the motion was passed unanimously. The motion read

This UEL branch meeting endorses the recommendation of the UCU negotiators that strike action called for Tuesday 23 October 2012 be suspended; this action is suspended to facilitate a meeting between UCU negotiators and UEL senior management including Deans, to take place this week, as agreed at the negotiating meeting on Friday 19 October 2012. Strike action planned for Monday 29 October 2012 is unaffected and remains in place pending progress in negotiations.
