Motion on Defending Jobs at University of Nottingham – 12th December 2023

The below motion was adopted by the Branch with a strong majority.

This branch notes:

  • That UCU at UoN again easily reached the ballot threshold of 50% during the most recent, national ballot (local records indicate a turnout in excess of 60%);
  • That we are well organised locally and therefore ready to defend our conditions at UoN if and when necessary;

This branch believes:

  • That it is our key task to defend all jobs and working conditions;
  • That we need to maintain our readiness to take action through the continuing building of our reps network;

This branch resolves:

  • That any management plans for redundancies will immediately trigger an e-ballot as a first step towards a formal ballot on industrial action.
