All Edinburgh UCU meeting: Building the Ballots, Preparing to Fight

We will be holding an all Edinburgh online meeting via Zoom on Wednesday October 13, 2021 from 12:30-1:30 PM. To join the meeting please use the Zoom link which has been sent to all HWUCU members by email. If you require a reminder, please contact the local branch office or a member of the branch committee.

Edinburgh, QMU, and HWU will be balloted on the 4 fights: Pay, Workloads, Casualisation, Equal pay. Edinburgh and HWU will also be balloted on the USS pension dispute. The main focus of the meeting will be the 4 fights as this is what unites all the Edinburgh branches. We will have a few speakers including at least one National pay negotiator, and UCU Scotland President, Lena Wanggren.

All members are welcome to come as are interested non-members. Come along and bring your colleagues. This is an ideal opportunity to find out about the disputes, to ask questions, and to make suggestions for actions we can take.

If BSL interpreting would be of assistance to the meeting please contact the on-campus BSL interpreting service (marion.fletcher@hw.ac.uk) directly to arrange this. Please give Marion as much notice as possible.
