This motion was agreed by the branch at a general meeting 8 March 2022
This branch notes:
That the University’s Fairer Future for All campaign was launched a week before our industrial action ballot opened in October 2021;
That the University regularly cites this campaign in response to student, staff and press enquiries about what they are doing to resolve our disputes;
That the recognised campus trade unions have not been involved in any aspect of the Fairer Future for all campaign and have been given no information about timescales, targets and outcomes.
This branch believes:
That what is needed to resolve our disputes is action by senior management at UK level and locally, not a campaign;
That any action to improve staff working conditions needs to be fully consulted or negotiated with the recognised trade unions in accordance with our recognition agreement with the University
This branch resolves:
To actively reject the idea that A Fairer Future For All represents movement towards the outcomes required to resolve our disputes with the University
To continue to push the University to negotiate with us an agreement to end casualisation, end unsafe workloads and fix the gender, race and disability pay gaps
To continue to pressure the University to lead resolution of our disputes at a UK wide level
To insist that our recognition agreement is respected
Proposed by Chloe Wallace, moved by Chloe Wallace, seconded by Jennifer Fletcher, motion carried.
