Motions for debate at our Extraordinary General Meeting, 13:00-14:00, Thu 14 Jun, Gordon Street (25) Maths 505

13 June 2018

EGM 14th June

Due to volume of business at our recent Annual General Meeting, we decided to call an additional Extraordinary General Meeting this Thursday 14 June, 13.00-14.00, Gordon Street (25) Maths 505.

You can download a poster for your noticeboard here.

Agenda items for this meeting will decide the position our Branch takes towards a number of policy issues troubling staff. We will be considering motions on:

  1. UCL’s policing of Tier 4 visas for students and its negative effects;
  2. The detrimental treatment of International (non-EU) Staff by UCL, relating especially to visa cost requirements, compared other universities;
  3. The disruption of UCU Congress by the General Secretary and her supporters walking out and shutting down discussion.

Though we do not normally hold meetings outside term time it is vitally important that the branch takes clear positions on these matters. We look forward to seeing you there.

Motion 2: Tier 4 Students, Visa Monitoring, and the 'Hostile Immigration Environment'
