Friday sees the last day for many of us before the two-week closure period.  Please note that many reps will be on leave during this period and the UNISON inbox will not be checked during this time. If you are working on campus and have a problem or issue and your local rep is not available, you can contact the Regional Office for support.  We will be back on Monday, 4 January, 2021.

  • Cleaning Staff – if you work within cleaning services, UNISON has launched a new survey asking for your views and input as part of the union’s response to the government’s consultation on low-paid workers.  You can find the survey here.
  • Covid Report Line – The University’s Covid hotline will remain open over the closure period, so please continue to call.
  • DUO Login – following on from feedback from members, we requested further information regarding the new DUO login.  We have been told that staff can request a keyfob rather than use an app on their personal phone.  If you would prefer a keyfob, please contact IT.  When back on campus, you should only need to use DUO once when you first login and not again.  If you are using virtual desktop, you will be asked to use DUO every time you log in.
  • Diaries – we are awaiting delivery of UNISON 2021 diaries.  If you would like one sending to you, and haven’t contacted us already, please email with your name and address and we will post a diary out to you in January.

We hope you can enjoy a restful and relaxing extended break, we all deserve to enjoy this much-needed break from work.

We’ll see you in the new year!
