Motion to ballot for Industrial Action
This branch notes:
a) the results of the recent UCU members’ consultative ballot on industrial action (70.3% turnout; 63.5% in favour of strike action; 87.6% in favour of action short of a strike);
b) that UCU Roehampton negotiators put the process of balloting for industrial action on hold in order to facilitate discussions with Senior Management;
c) the report of those discussions held on Monday 11 January 2021, disseminated on 12 January 2021;
d) the lengthy process of balloting
Therefore, this branch resolves to request authorisation to ballot and to move to a ballot for industrial action immediately.
