What could Colin do?

Cardiff UCU have listed for the Vice-Chancellor four things he could do immediately to push for a national dispute resolution and begin to address local concerns.

There are four things the VC could do immediately to help end the national industrial action, and begin to address staff concerns about conditions at Cardiff University:

  1. Publicly call for UCEA to negotiate on pay.
  2. Publicly call on the USS to accept the recommendations of the JEP and for UUK to work closely with UCU toward its implementation.
  3. Commit publicly to meaningfully addressing pay inequality, casualization, and workload problems at Cardiff University.
  4. Agree to stagger strike pay deductions for staff over an eight-month period to begin to rebuild goodwill.

Cardiff Students Supporting UCU Strike Action have also published an open letter to the VC, suggesting positive action.
