Ulster University must learn lessons from industrial tribunal findings - Archibald

7 December, 2017 - by Caoimhe Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said Ulster University must learn lessons from the findings of the industrial tribunal taken by the University and College Union (UCU) on redundancies.

The Party's Further and Higher Education Spokesperson said:

"The findings of the tribunal taken by UCU regarding redundancies in April 2016 are very concerning. 

"It highlighted poor relationships and a failure to properly inform and engage with unions and staff regarding redundancy plans.

"Lessons must be learnt from this, and I hope that this verdict marks a turning point in the University's relationship with trade unions.

"Staff should be respected and properly involved in the running of Universities, not regarded as an inconvenience to be sidelined."
