A joint statement from UCU and UNISON Senate House branches:
We note with concern the ongoing dispute between Cordant and its security staff.
As always, UNISON’s and UCU’s long held positions is to strongly oppose the outsourcing of workers in all circumstances.
We are formally approaching the University to re-visit the issue of outsourcing with the aim of returning all staff in house.
Furthermore, UCU Senate House will be holding a members’ meeting tomorrow to discuss, amongst other matters, the trend of outsourcing in HE.
