Kent UCU win

“Student Cap” Policy changed by National UCU, thanks to Kent-CCCU Motion

At the UCU Congress in Glasgow last week, the motion on reintroducing student distribution in HE was passed, and it has now become National UCU policy. The motion was proposed by Dave Hitchcock (CCCU) and seconded by Balihar Sanghera (Kent).

UCU will commission research on models of student distribution that will ensure stability and rebalance after years of uneven recruitment and financial precarity in the sector. The union will begin the campaign across all universities to protect jobs via the reintroduction of student distribution. It will also lobby the government and opposition parties to adopt a student distribution system. This is a big win for Kent members who voted for the motion in a branch meeting.
