Hold Durham UCU meeting prior to UCU Congress

We respectfully request that a meeting of DUCU be held prior to the UCU national Congress.

Please include your department / unit when signing.

(Local association rules state that if a quorate of 50 members request an Extraordinary General Meeting, it should be held within 14 days of the request.)

Why is this important?

This is important in order to allow regular members to be informed about and have a voice in the business which will take place at UCU Congress. In particular, the pensions dispute which we went on strike over is ongoing. It is vital that members stay engaged with the union's actions in relation to the dispute. We are the union.

As we now have the 50 required signatures, I have sent this to DUCU. Just prior to this, I already received a message that they were working on organizing a meeting. So I now expect that we will soon receive notice of an upcoming meeting. If and when that happens, let's make sure to attend the meeting and engage with the democratic process of our union!
