Working to contract starts now

Following the strike action last Thursday members are now called on to

1. Work no more than their contracted hours where those hours are
expressly stated (for many full-time Bath staff this will be 36.5
hours per week) or where they are stipulated in a workload agreement
and in any event not to exceed the maximum number of hours per week
stipulated in the Working Time Regulations (48 hours a week);
university managers claim that academic staff are not covered by
these regulations but UCU disputes that claim.

2. perform no additional voluntary duties, such as out of hours
cover, or covering for colleagues (unless such cover is
contractually required);

3. set and mark no work beyond that work which they are
contractually obliged to set and/or mark;

4. attend no meetings where such attendance is voluntary on the part
of the members;

5. undertake no duties that breach health and safety policies or
other significant employer’s policies.
