Following discussions between UCL and UCU representatives, the UCL Branch has today unanimously voted to end its dispute with UCL.

UCL welcomes this announcement, which follows discussions regarding organisational change and a reduction in the number of academic posts in the Faculty of Life Sciences. 

Following consultation with staff in the faculty, the Dean is confident that the reduction in academic posts can be achieved by voluntary means. We can therefore confirm that UCL no longer needs to establish a Redundancy Committee, as required by UCL's Statutes, to consider compulsory academic redundancies within Life Sciences.
