AUT strike rumble's on...
The meeting will be held on Wednesday 10th May 6.00 pm, Room GO6, Peter Froggatt Centre.
Dr Paul Hudson (QUB AUT) and Professor Ken Bell (Pro Vice Chancellor) will be in attendence.
As talks resumed today in London between the lecturer's Union - the AUT - and the Universities and Colleges Employers' Association; the talks however have been reported to have ended in failure, with an offer of 12.6% made by the University association.
It has however been reported (according to BBC News online, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/4983898.stm) that the offer has been turned down. The Universities association had previously made an offer of an increase of 3% for this year and next.
The offer was described as "way below" what was needed to end the on-going examinations boycott.
As Queens staff waited today to hear the outcome of the talks, it is thought that staff have incurred a pay cut for the work they're supposed to be doing, beginning today.
The strike continues ...
