We recognise both EIS and UNISON unions for the purpose of collective bargaining and negotiations regarding pay and associated terms and conditions for staff in Grades 1-7.
The University fully respects the right of colleagues to take industrial action and accepts that such action is not taken lightly; we are of course concerned by the potential impact any industrial action will have on our ability to meet our students’ needs.
The below documents will support you in what actions you may need to take, either as a line manager or as someone participating in industrial action.
