NEC Elections, February 2015
There are currently postal ballots for various posts on the UCU's national bodies, and you are encouraged to use your votes. One member of this LA is a candidate, Mary Jennings, who is standing for re-election as the NEC representative from the HE sector for LGBT members.
USS Dispute Over, 29th January 2015
A clear majority of those voting in the national ballot voted to accept the new offer from the employers. Therefore the current dispute is over, and with it the suspended assessment boycott.
The vote was 67.1% in favour of acceptance on a 39.1% turnout. I can add that your LA Exec remains broadly representative, for, as a result of private conversations, I know it contains people who voted in favour, against, and who could not bring themselves to vote for any option. (MJR)
The LA Executive currently has vacancies. Anyone interested in being co-opted should contact one of the current members for more information.
