Kingston UCU met the 60% turnout threshold on a national ballot over the ‘four fights’, with a majority of those who voted endorsing both strike action and action short of strike (ASOS). Because we met the minimum 50% turnout required, we now have a legal mandate to do both of these things.
Following discussion at the branch meeting on 10th November, the branch Chair and Vice-Chair fed back the views of Kingston UCU members to the national branch delegates meeting. Following this, a decision by was taken by UCU national to instruct its members to:
- Undertake 3 days of strike action between Wednesday 1st and Friday 3rd December
- Commence ASOS (working to contract) from December 1st
Kingston UCU will be participating in both of these actions. Branch meetings will take place on Wednesday 24th at 1pm or 7pm to discuss how the branch will manage both strike action and ASOS.
