We’re fighting a compulsory redundancy at CCCU

A UCU member has been in our view inappropriately dismissed due to ‘redundancy’.

This is a compulsory redundancy which UCU opposes.

The case is being appealed.

The UCU branch is considering what action, up to and including industrial action, it will take to protect members’ jobs and prevent compulsory redundancies in the future.

The SMT and the governors have all been contacted to inform them of the seriousness of the current situation and of UCU’s national position.

UCU CCCU believe the redundancy need not occur. The cost of loss of goodwill and confidence in SMT that compulsory redundancy will create massively outweighs any short term, short-sighted financial gain.

The Branch will consider what action can be taken to support our member and to protect jobs in the future at our next Branch Meeting.

Currently UCU is taking action in Leeds to protect staff and members from poor management practice and redundancies.
