Update: Meeting with GenSec Jo Grady

Dear friends and colleagues,

As you know, UCU General Secretary Jo Grady will be at Keele on Monday 30 September (12pm, CBA0.061) for an open meeting on pay, pensions, and the challenges facing HE and UCU. All are welcome, so please encourage your colleagues (members and non-members alike) to attend. 

Following the meeting, Jo will be leading a parade to the nearest post box for a mass ballot posting. If you haven’t posted your ballot, please bring it along. If you have posted it, please feel free to join the line! If you have your “I voted” stickers, please bring them along.

Next week we will also be holding a joint meeting with Unison specifically for PSS and Academic Related colleagues so that we can get feedback on the ongoing OneKeele project. This feedback will let us make stronger representations to the senior management team in meetings specifically focused on OneKeele. The joint meeting will be on Wednesday, 2 October at 12pm. The room is yet to be confirmed, but we will send a further email as soon as we get room confirmation from timetabling.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting with Jo on Monday.

In solidarity,

Becky (KUCU Branch Secretary)

on behalf of KUCU Committee
