The strike is over

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/5052730.stm

It seems that the UCU (new name for the merged AUT and NATFHE) are now actually balloting their members on the pay offer offered them by the UCEA. Thus the marking/exam boycott will be suspended from midnight. It may come back if the members vote against the 13.1% offer, but for now, the unionised lecturers are obliged to do the work they haven't been doing for the last few months. Personally, I reckon the ballot will go for taking the offer. Slightly lower than what the union would have been happy with, but high enough so that both sides can accept this as a fair deal.

I'm surprised no one (other than the RaW News blog) has blogged about this yet.

Incompetence

The university really are incompetent, aren't they? We book a minibus every Monday evening of term and yet for the second time this term they don't have one for us. That really is not on, especially when after the first time the exec went to the bus man up at Westood to make sure that buses were booked for all the other Mondays this term.

What is going wrong in the booking system? We know the booking system had our booking in it, we checked last time this happened. So where's our minibus?
