   As you may now know, after two years of hard work by UCU
representatives, at the 11th hour management suddenly pulled a job
out of the hat after all for the colleague about to be made
compulsorily redundant. This happened (surprise, surprise!) two hours
before the ballot result emerged and action was due to be called.

   The ballot produced an excellent result of 76% in favour of action
short of a strike and 62% in favour of strike action.

   *  It demonstrates the strength of having the union around you
   * it has made us stronger and shown the deep-rooted solidarity felt
for colleagues in difficulty
   * it shows that the merged union works
   * it allows us to move forward on other issues we need to progress
for members with confidence and renewed vigour

   Well done to all who voted in support of the UCU advice - now is a
good time for all members to ensure that all their colleagues are
also in the union - link to application form below:-
