This week all of our members received an invitation to fill out the QMUCU Covid-19 Attitudes Survey. Put together by our health and safety representatives, the survey is designed to gather evidence about the issues staff are facing and demonstrate how widely shared these concerns are. It will only take a few minutes to complete, and all responses are anonymous and confidential. The survey link was sent to your email on Monday and Wednesday.

We have had over 200 responses already! But this is not enough, we need everyone to fill this out in order for this evidence to bear weight in our negotiations with the management.

Why are we collecting this information?

You will have seen our exchanges with the Principal in relation to the health and safety concerns you have raised. While these exchanges elicited a detailed response, it is clear more pressure needs to be exerted if staff are to secure significant improvements. Unless senior management understand the strength of feeling in the university, it is unlikely they will take the steps needed to keep Queen Mary safe.

What will we do with this information?

We will use this information to make a case for our health and safety demands. This will not only be necessary for guaranteeing a safe workplace and a full move to F2F teaching, but equally important for our fight for just workloads. We need evidence to support our demands.

How can I help out with this?

  • Send this survey to five of your colleagues
  • Join your colleagues in a phone banking session to ask other QMUCU members to fill out the survey. Contact to join our phone banking session on Tue at 5 pm.
