UCU@UEA was pleased to welcome union general secretary Sally Hunt to UEA on 31st January.

Sally spoke to our General Meeting about some of the priorities for the union at the moment:

  • A pay claim, but linked to that a request for consideration of workload
  • Pensions
  • UCU’s analysis of equality in HE institutions
  • Casualisation
  • Privatisation of the HE sector

 

Questions from members pulled out the workload issue some more, and discussion of the Research/Teaching academic career pathways.

Sally’s message at the end was that despite the challenges facing us she feels positive!  And she encouraged members to recruit colleagues because trade unions are more relevant than ever.
