BREAKING: Hundreds of UL lecturers and staff to be balloted on industrial action

HUNDREDS of UNITE union members at the University of Limerick (UL) are to be balloted on industrial action up to and including strike action.

A letter seeking a formal ballot across all UL-UNITE staff grades was sent to the trade union’s headquarters earlier this week, Limerick Voice has learned.

According to UL-UNITE the move was sparked by months of protracted delay and inadequate levels of trade union consultation on a number of important issues affecting all grades of staff.

“This has become unbearable and unacceptable to staff,” the spokesperson said.  

Limerick Voice has learned that UL-UNITE has advised all its members not to participate in any meetings or engagement relating to UL@50 Driving Our Strategic Plan and the Work Allocation Model (WAM) Pilot Study.

The trade union claims no meaningful consulatation has taken place on these issues.

A spokesperson for UL said the University had no comment to make on the  the trade union’s proposed ballot and the threat of strike action.
