UCU Senate House branch supports the return of outsourced workers, including cleaning staff, to direct employment by the University of London. In recent months, we have worked closely with UNISON and University management on implementing the first phase of this process and we are pleased that a first group of staff will become UoL employees from 20 May 2019.
The current boycott of Senate House is having an adverse impact on UCU members at this branch. We call on University management to release a clear timetable for the in-housing of remaining outsourced staff, including the cleaners.
We are using the platforms we have available to us, including the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) meeting on 4 April and a sub-JNC meeting on 9 April, to emphasise the importance of urgently addressing this matter.
