Thanks from the branch officers for feedback from members who are/were working overseas. Many of you were very distressed by the initial communications you received from the university and by follow up conversations. The UCU negotiating team are feeding this back in conversations with HR managers to try to make sure the process is more supportive and that you get more clarity on what you are being asked to do and why.
If you think individual support would be helpful, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a UCU volunteer caseworker. Together we’ll do our best to ensure that the university takes people’s personal circumstances into consideration in the most supportive way possible.
