Management has proposed single table bargaining. Are such arrangements appropriate given that our members are subject to a separate national agreement?

Implementation of the framework is expected to be by partnership between institutions and recognised trade unions. Relationships with other unions will need to be clarified in any joint working arrangements. Joint work will be required to determine overall grading arrangements but work that effects only academic and related staff need not be undertaken with non-academic unions. Branches and LAs should check existing procedure agreements to ensure that joint arrangements are sufficient. Any agreements that have the effect of changing terms and conditions of contracts of employment of academic and academic related staff should be concluded within existing procedural agreements between the employer and the UCU.
