Members’ meeting report: Monday 10th November

Attended by more than 50 people, today’s UCU members’ meeting discussed how to organise best the assessment boycott in response to the employers’ attack on the USS pension fund. It was agreed that the local UCU will produce a Frequently Asked Questions document in order to cover the most important queries by colleagues. In order to generate further support for the boycott it was, moreover, pointed out that individual colleagues should get into conversations with colleagues in their particular area in order to convince them about the necessity of action in defence of our pension benefits. Finally, the meeting resolved that a local sub-committee will explore the possibility of setting up a solidarity fund. This would allow the local UCU, first, to ensure that everybody can be involved in the action, even if they cannot participate in the assessment boycott, because they are, for example, on research leave or APM staff. Second, this will help to soften the financial impact on those, who do participate in the assessment boycott from the beginning. Details of the solidarity fund will be circulated shortly.
