Welcome to Leicester University and College Union
At a joint meeting with other campus unions on Wednesday 14th November LUCU members present voted to raise certain matters as formal industrial disputes with the University.
The matters are:
1 - Failure to consult properly on reorganisations, and failure to follow the University's ordinances in this area.
2 - Persistent failure to properly notify unions of situations where employees are at risk of redundancy.
3 - Persistent failure to negotiate with unions regarding the assimilation of hourly paid staff, associate lecturers and other atypical workers onto the national pay spine, as specified in the 2006 local framework agreement.
This means that Leicester UCU will not co-operate with the university on collective matters including the ongoing reorganisations. Leicester UCU will however continue to provide support on personal cases.
