The university has revised its new policy for adverse weather conditions following consultation with trade unions.
UCU, Unison and Unite were consulted on the draft policy, which all three unions agreed over-emphasised the importance of keeping the university running over the safety of staff.
University senior management have made numerous changes to the policy, which now much better emphasises that staff should not risk their safety or health to get to work.
The policy is now on the university website: http://hr.leeds.ac.uk/info/29/leave_other_leave/329/managing_staff_affected_by_adverse_weather_and_disruptions_to_public_transport
This isn’t an agreed policy, but the university has made significant improvements at our request.
UCU’s advice, as usual, is to go into work if you can but don’t be pressured to if you can’t.
