Coventry University Trade Union Dispute

EDM number 1178 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Cunningham on 18/04/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Employment, Higher education and Industrial relations.

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.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
