We’re coming up to the Easter break and we hope that you can find time to relax and recuperate over the closure days.  Here are our updates this week:

  • UNISON NEC Elections 2021 – UNISON’s NEC elections take place from 4 – 27 May 2021 and you will receive a voting pack in the post.  To make sure you receive your voting pack, please login or register for My UNISON and ensure your contact details are correct.  The branch will be sending out our 100-word nomination statements in the coming weeks.
  • Online Member Meetings – we have two upcoming member meetings in April:

Trinity Members – Monday, 19 April, 12:30-1pm Meeting Link
All Members – Tuesday, 20 April, 12:30-1:30pm Meeting Link

If you would like to submit questions in advance, you can do so by emailing us at unison@leeds.ac.uk.  We hope to see you there!

  • Help and support over Easter – the University of Leeds is closed from 12:30pm on Thursday 1 April and will re-open on Wednesday 7 April.  If you require help and support during this period, please contact the UNISON Yorkshire & Humber Regional Office.  We will be back in the office from 7 April and will be picking up emails from the unison@leeds.ac.uk email address from this date.
  • Single Payroll – as outlined previously, Phase 2 of the move to a single payroll for those who are currently paid on the 16th of the month has started and you should be invited to a group consultation to discuss the change to the date you get paid.  You should also receive a letter with the details of the change.  Reps are attending the consultation meetings to ask questions, but if you have been informed your pay date will be changing and you have any questions or concerns or would like support, please get in touch with us at unison@leeds.ac.uk or contact our Branch Welfare Officer, Chris Money, directly at c.money@leeds.ac.uk

As always, if you would like advice and support about a workplace issue, please contact us at unison@leeds.ac.uk or contact your local rep or Branch Officer.
