In this post, we list the Senate House branch’s priorities for the next few months. These were identified following the first meeting of this year’s branch committee on 7 Jan and during discussion of a motion at a well-attended branch members meeting on 22 Jan.

  1. USS pension dispute – identify opportunities to keep the dispute on the radar of senior management
  2. London Weighting – continue campaigning work on this important pay equality issue
  3. In-housing – hold the University to commitments made; first of all, the in-housing of reception, AV, post and portering colleagues in spring/summer 2019
  4. Casework – provide high quality advice for UCU members
  5. Increase awareness of equality and the law in the workplace at the University
  6. Take action on pay equality and casualization
  7. Lobby for UoL to support colleagues and students from EU countries affected by Brexit.
  8. Take action to normalise union membership
  9. Increase UCU membership at the branch
  10. Make better use of the existing channels of influence we already have as a branch

If you have any questions or comments about this post, please email the branch committee. UCU members can also request a copy of the finalised motion that led to this post.
