Motion on the accountability of the General Secretary

Motion for General Meeting: on the accountability of the General Secretary

Cambridge UCU calls on the General Secretary to make a statement to members affirming that she respects the sovereignty of Congress and recognises that her actions in her capacity as an elected representative of members and our lead negotiator are subject to scrutiny by UCU members through the motions accepted as in order under UCU rules.


We further call on the GS to condemn the disruption to the democratic process of  Congress 2018 which prevented the discussion of motions critical of her actions during the USS dispute.


If the GS has not made such a statement by the next NEC meeting, we call on the NEC to censure the GS for undermining the confidence of members in the democratic processes of the union.
