Update on return to campus:

Cardiff UCU negotiators met with management on Wednesday (18th) at a Joint Consultative negotiating Forum (JCNF) that we called specifically to discuss staff being forced to attend work on campus. Management asserted the approach to on-campus working is supportive and collaborative and that they are unaware of staff being forced to return to campus. Cardiff UCU have reported to management that staff have reported being forced to return to campus on several occasions. Management asserted that they would not make a clear and public commitment not to force any member of staff to attend work on campus. Cardiff UCU executive are discussing option for how to proceed, including balloting for industrial action – please let me know what you think about this by emailing ucu@cardiff.ac.uk
