Biggest ever UCU meeting in Kent branch history passes ‘strike ballot motion’ to defend PS jobs

  • 137 people attended the emergency general meeting on Tuesday 4 April to vote 96% in favour of this motion (see email for link).
  • The motion defends professional services (PS) job security in light of the restructure. It also addresses other concerns, like the catastrophic effect on PS and academic workloads.
  • The motion begins the process of launching an industrial action ballot.
  • Your strong turnout today has already hugely strengthened your elected negotiators’ leverage. There is significant scope for a good negotiated deal for members – if you stay organised.
