Restructuring of EUROP:
The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is consulting staff in the School of European Languages, Translation and Politics in preparation for a potential restructuring. In a series of group and individual meetings to take place during February, staff will be invited to comment on "What is the best organisational structure for the achievement of the School’s academic ambitions?"
Consultation on Attendance Allowance:
The future of an attendance allowance scheme will be discussed in an upcoming meeting between the unions and university management. The scheme has historically offered a bonus to some staff in the Campus Services Division and the Day Care Centre in order to minimise sickness absences.

RECRUIT A COLLEAGUE CAMPAIGN
In a period of fast moving change, we believe that it is now even more important that colleagues should be members of UCU so that support and advice will be available to them when needed. Please help us to reach our friends and colleagues with our message. See our leaflet here Recruitment Leaflet
Members are asked to give it to a colleague whom they believe may not presently be a member of UCU. We do not wish to see our friends and colleagues suffering unwelcome consequences of change without being able to help. We would be pleased to answer any questions that members or any potential members may have. Contact us at email@example.com or telephone Cardiff (029) 2087 4443
