Link to branch online petition about probation and interim REF

Essex UCU branch have launched an online petition about probation and the internal REF within University of Essex on the web:


This is mainly of concern to academic staff given the issues, but we very much welcome any signatures also from non-academic staff in support. It is very important to secure the position of especially our junior colleagues on probation. The petition is self-explanatory.

It is an OPEN petition, meaning anyone who accesses the URL can sign it. Hence I will ask you importantly to PLEASE FILL IN YOUR Essex email and ask others to do the same. (The petition asks for names too so it is not a matter of anonymity.) This will allow us to track and count signatures from Essex.


Many thanks for your support
