Special branch meeting Wednesday 6th at 13:15-14:05 in 3E 2.1.

You will all have received an email from the UCU General Secretary today announcing that in response to the recent pay ballot, UCU is calling eight days of strike action, starting on Monday the 25 November and finishing Wednesday the 4 December. This will be followed by a period of action short of a strike (ASOS).

This action is taken in respect to both disputes – on USS and pay and conditions – and as members of Bath UCU voted in favour of both actions*, we will be out of strike for both disputes.

To provide further information, answer questions, discuss hardship fund payment details, and organise pickets, a special branch meeting will be held on Wednesday 6th at 13:15-14:05 in 3E 2.1.

I hope that as many members as possible will be able to attend. For those who cannot, further information will of course be circulated by email over coming weeks.

* As a reminder: On USS, the vote was 79.3% support strike action and 88.4% action short of a strike (58% turnout) and on pay and conditions, 74.6% support strike action and 86.2% action short of a strike (on 55% turnout).
