COVENTRY UNIVERSITY TRADE UNION DISPUTE
EDM #1178
Tabled 18 April 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that Coventry University revealed that it had registered its staff association, the Staff Consultative Group, as a union and signed a recognition agreement with it; is alarmed about reports that the majority of Coventry University staff were unaware of the staff association and were not consulted; is concerned that this means that staff in the CU Group have been denied a union since the company was set up five years ago; further notes that members and staff have made it clear that they want the University and College Union (UCU) to represent them; notes that a petition has been started on this issue, gaining 9,453 signatures so far; and calls on Coventry University to derecognise its company union and recognise the UCU for collective bargaining with immediate effect.
