PAY DISPUTE INDUSTRIAL ACTION
A big thank you to all our members who supported the strike action on 3 December and joined the picket of University buildings. A special thank you to students from Archaeology who showed their support by joining the picket and supplying delicious cakes and biscuits. The action continues with the Work to Contract:
- work no more than their contracted hours where those hours are expressly stated (for many full-time Cardiff staff this will be 35 hours per week) or where they are stipulated in a workload agreement and in any event not to exceed the maximum number of hours per week stipulated in the Working Time Regulations (48 hours a week);
- perform no additional voluntary duties, such as out of hours cover, or covering for colleagues (unless such cover is contractually required);
-set and mark no work beyond that work which they are contractually obliged to set and/or mark;
- attend no meetings where such attendance is voluntary on the part of the members;
- undertake no duties that breach health and safety policies or other significant employer's policies.

Please get in touch if you have any queries. Thank you for your support.

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
