Bristol UCU Newsflash, 13th April 2021

1) Reminder: Bristol UCU E-Survey: UCU Special 4F HE Sector Conference, Wednesday, 20th April

Please complete this Bristol UCU E-Survey, by clicking on the link below, so as to inform your Bristol UCU delegates before next week’s Special HE Sector Conference on the Four Fights dispute:

Bristol UCU does not currently have a mandate for 4F or USS strike action this 21/22 academic year.

Please note: this Conference is one of two HE Sector Conferences. A separate E-Survey will be sent out for the USS dispute Special HE Sector Conference on Wednesday, 27th April​​.

The key decision for Bristol UCU delegates at both Conferences: whether, given the reballot results, intransigent employers and the reduced number of branches with strike action mandates, to escalate our twin dispute through further strike action – a marking and assessment boycott and indefinite strike action this academic year and next.
