Cardiff UCU Motions to UCU Congress 2019: “Protect LBGT+ studies/protect LBT+ staff”, “Workload, Mental Health, Health & Safety, and Workplace Suicide”

Two super-important motions were moved on our behalf at the UCU Congress a few weeks back by our branch President Ryan Prout;

  • The first, on LGBT+ studies and protection of LGBT+ colleagues was passed; and
  • The second, which called on UCU to campaign for a new law to force employers to record workplace suicides (in light of the tragic loss of more than one of our Cardiff colleagues in recent years), was remitted to the UCU National Executive Committee because time ran out. We hope it will be passed soon.
