Suspension of strike action for Tuesday 23rd October

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.

 We agreed that it was sensible to call off Tuesday’s action so that the negotiators can seek to make progress at the meeting with management tomorrow. Nevertheless meaningful progress is by no means guaranteed and it is therefore important that we work hard towards effective strike action on Monday 29th October. It is very important for all UCU members to respond positively to UCU reps who are organising picketing for next Monday.
