Just came out of Democracy Commission to obv crushing news. Would be easy to descend into doom. Just remember that’s what Tories wanted their 50% shitty threshold to do. They want us demoralised. Resist! We have a lot to assess + do. We need to build. We need resources to do it/1
A lot of us did a lot of work on GTVO. We’re knackered. We reached a lot of ppl+got strong YES result. What can we learn+do? Must reflect+organise together at every level. How can we boost creative ideas like those at HESC in November and reach more ppl? Eg ntnl phonebanking? /2
We need deep diving on what holds some members back from voting. Research we did @leedsucu last time gave us a mixed picture of timing, ballot confusion+fatigue, key messages not getting across. Has this changed? Have we succeeded in some areas/dropped others or stayed same?/3

Thanks everyone @UCU_Ulster who made overcoming tech issues possible! Really great questions on REF, #Anticas and #SecureWork, #Workload + academic & academic related & professional staff contracts (#LoveOurARPS!)/1
The stuff that came up about role profiles for academic related+professional staff roles is partially covered here:ucu.org.uk/article/1931/R…
^Academic role profiles+guidance were agreed through JNCHES (AUT days, pre-UCU). ARPS role profiles weren't quite prioritised in same way /2
Who're ARPS? WE ARE LEGION! Working in diverse roles sometimes referred to as professional/services/managerial; in 2004 Framework Agreement as 'Academic Related'. We include library+IT staff, administrators, specialists, student support, counsellors, careers advisors, more! /3
