OU UCU - The Spark, May 2016
Regional dispute – ballot and agreement
The ballot on the regional dispute remains open until 12 noon on Friday 20th May. If you haven’t yet voted, please remember to do so in good time.
The Executive is recommending that you vote to accept the agreement, as it includes real and substantial gains over the initial offer. We have produced FAQs and a commentary on the proposed agreement, which you can see at http://ucu.open.ac.uk/regional_closures. If you have any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rejecting the agreement would mean that these negotiated improvements would not be available to members. We believe that only prolonged, sustained industrial action would have any chance of moving the University further and improving the offer.
Please be sure to cast your vote, whichever way you vote. It is very important that the whole membership makes a collective decision this dispute.
