Public statement by the Aberdeen branch of the University & College Union

More than 50% of Aberdeen UCU members responded to an informal consultation regarding the output of the ACAS talks between UCU and UUK.

Dr David Watts represented Aberdeen at the UCU HQ meeting which took place in London on Tuesday. The branch had to react quickly and made every effort, given the deadline, to engage all members in forming a collective response. The position of the branch was shared with David in advance of the meeting. That position is that Aberdeen UCU rejects the proposal brokered via the Acas-mmediated talks. It should be noted this position is in keeping with that made public by many other branches.

Further information on the outcome from the UCU HQ meeting will be shared as soon as possible. Strike action continues as planned till Friday 16 March.

More information on the national dispute can be found here. Local information can be found here.  FAQs are regularly updated - you'll find the most recent version here.
