Action on threat of compulsory redundancies

Following media reports of possible staffing cuts at Cardiff University, the University’s representatives at this week’s Joint Consultative and Negotiating Forum refused to rule out the threat of compulsory redundancies as a consequence of the Size and Shape Review and the Transforming Cardiff/Transffurfio Caerdydd programme.

We hope that our fears prove unfounded and we are keen to work with the University to avoid redundancies, as we have done before.

As a result, and in accordance with the unanimous resolution passed at Wednesday’s General Meeting, UCU has written to the Vice-Chancellor invoking the Disputes Resolution Procedure and requesting that a meeting of the Joint Negotiation Committee be convened on this issue.
