Alternative plan for UEL – 19th March 1.00-2.30pm Docklands EB.G.06

Tthe details of an alternative plan for UEL (see https://uel.web.ucu.org.uk/2014/02/27/alternative-vision-for-uel/  for details) have received a number of comments on the plan and would now like to start a debate about an alternative vision of UEL. They are calling an open meeting to dicuss the alternative plan on Wednesday 19th March in Docklands between 1.00-2.30pm at Docklands in EB.G.06 . It would be useful if as many people as possible could attend so that the document could be amended in light of the opinions of all staff at UEL.
