Following the emergency meeting last month, the first of the newly scheduled meetings for School of Advanced Study admin staff took place today.
The main concern was over the emails and letters many had received notifying them of their placement in new teams – it was felt that this had been poorly communicated, details in many cases were incorrect, and reporting lines remained to be clarified.
However, undertakings were given that these issues would be addressed, and the meeting was generally a positive one, with staff feeling that these new forums were a good way of airing and resolving grievances of this sort.
It was also agreed that two staff reps would be chosen, and volunteers are now being sought.
Any IWGB members with any concerns regarding changes to their contracts or their terms and conditions, or with any issues with the review process in general, should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
