Cardiff UCU Health and Safety Meeting:

We held a Cardiff UCU Health & Safety meeting for local reps on Monday (16th) ahead of the JCNF to hear from Health & Safety and Dep Reps to gather information about members’ Health & Safety concerns and whether staff are being formed to work on campus. Reports highlighted the huge variability in approaches, with some reps reporting that staff are being forced and threatened with disciplinary action if they do not return to campus and others reporting a more supportive and collaborative approach. There were also reports of insufficient equipment for home working, being unable to access on-campus facilities and increased workloads. We will hold subsequent meetings about supporting and co-ordinating the branches Health and Safety work – please email if you would like to help.
