Leeds University UCU have escalated our action in defence of Statute protections and against the additional ground for dismissing staff: ‘Some Other Substantial Reason’ (SOSR). More details on our website.
We are currently working to contract and we will be on strike for three consecutive days next week: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 11, 12 and 13 October. Solidarity and external exposure will help us to win this dispute.
A dispute of national significance
This is a UCU dispute of national significance; please take a few minutes to: Email our Vice Chancellor, Sir Alan Langlands, to protest: Vice-Chancellor@leeds.ac.uk. You could let him know that SOSR to dismiss staff has no place in a University and that Leeds Uni has managed well without it to date. If you are a Leeds alumnus please mention this.
