An opportunity to have better industrial relations at UEL….

Now is the time to put the grim 2012 behind us and to consider 2013 as a year of new opportunities. Recent departures from VCG group offer the possibility of a change of direction by management that returns better industrial relations to UEL in general and halts the creeping culture of fear that many staff are voicing concerns about. It is therefore important to continue to show the strength of the union and its resolve to be the voice of staff, along with Unison and Unite colleagues, in defence of our working conditions and UEL as an institution. On your behalf UCU raised concerns last week about the student attendance monitoring policy as well as staff: student ratios & module closures, and the impact of both on the student experience & NSS. We also asked that the use of Grade Mark for online marking be reviewed after several concerns.

 Come to the next UCU branch meeting  on March 13th (Docklands EBG.06) to hear what management had to say about the key issues of work perfomance monitoring, attendance monitoring, grade mark for online marking 

Together we are stronger……
