Dear Branch Members,

Workload

Thank you very much to those of you who have shared details of WAMs for 2021/22. The branch is carrying out concerted work in this area to ensure that the current stronger financial position for the University leads to benefits for all of our members.

We are aware that Professional Service colleagues do not have agreed WAMs and were particularly affected by the cuts in staff last summer. Therefore, we are really keen to hear from you about your workload pressures. It is very easy for us to make arguments about ensuring research time for teaching and research staff because of the WAM modelling. It is much harder to make concrete arguments about what can be practically done to support PS colleagues without your evidence. Please do email us with any examples.
