VC's response to UCU's latest campaigns update
The Vice-Chancellor has responded to UCU's General Secretary, Sally Hunt.
I realise that union officials and University managers will sometimes have different interpretations of events, but UCU's latest Head Office Campaigns Update goes too far.
You contend that 'over a thousand jobs are under threat' at Leeds, and that the 'university seeks to impose a method for attaching a numerical score to all members of academic staff'. Neither statement is true, and I invite you to withdraw them both.
Staff here are fed up with UCU's distortion of events at Leeds, and you will understand that I am therefore making this letter public.
