Latest UCU branch guidance 

Updated Scottish Government guidance for Universities
Updated Scottish Government guidance for universities, colleges and accommodation providers on safe returns to campus was published this week. UCU welcomed the recognition that it won’t be campus life as normal this year, but expressed concerns that remote learning is not explicitly the default position, and on the threats of disciplinaries for staff and students who breach Covid-19 rules.
Branch officers received an update on how to use the guidance in local negotiations.

Branch guidance – concerns re. on-site working
Updated branch guidance where concerns remain that members are being required to return to on-site working is attached. In circumstances where reps believe the risk assessments remain unsuitable and insufficient, the advice is intended to assist members to make informed decisions and advise their manager accordingly.
