Where: Bedson 1.19
UCU has been following the restructuring in SAgE and having discussions with management about it off and on for the last year or so. Now that it is being implemented, a number of members have raised concerns about how existing staff are fitting into the new structures, especially when it comes to regrading of jobs and the potential for redundancies. Bruce Baker (our new Newcastle UCU President) will be hosting a meeting for any members who are affected by the SEE restructuring to discuss concerns. The purpose of the meeting is to help Newcastle UCU formulate a plan as to how we should be supporting our members in SAGE. If you are interested in contributing to the discussion but are unable to attend at this time, please email Bruce directly (Bruce.Baker@newcastle.ac.uk). While academic-related staff are most directly affected by the restructuring, the work of academic-related staff is inextricably linked to that of academics, so staff of any category who might have concerns are encouraged to come along and contribute to the discussion.
