There has been a lot of discussion about the AUT on blogs, in fact there was one point it was having a pretty good go at getting all the the hot topics!
A lot of that debate has been about the Union's stance on this issue and that being discussed tonight. Don't miss this opportunity to have your say.

There is a Union Emergency General Meeting scheduled for 7pm on Monday in the Ramphal Lecture theatre. There we will be discussing the Union's position on the lecturers' strike. You should all have got an email about it anyway but all publicity is good publicity.
I would urge you all to come if you are free (but only if you feel comfortable doing so if you still have exams). The current policy proposed is available here
Basically I now take the view with General Meetings that it doesn't matter if they are inquorate so long as they are publicised properly. All four General Meetings this year have been advertised in very similar ways, yet there has been a marked difference in attendance and this can only really be down to the issues being discussed. If it is big enough students will come to talk about it. My gut feeling on this is that we should reach quorum, given the amount of discussion on here about it anyway.
If you can't come then please feel free to leave a comment with your view or if you don't want to comment publically drop me an email.

I direct you to the news article on the Union website. Please try not to have a riot on my blog. The policy being put forward will be available at some point tomorrow morning. I trust given the discussion had on blogs so far about this issue we shouldn't have too much trouble getting it quorate.
Other than that it's been a busy day. I spent much of the day interviewing, so that's two days of interviews in a row. One on each side of the table.
The rest of the day was spent dealing with my inbox from yesterday (on average I get about 30–40 emails a day).
As ever anything you want to ask a sabbatical you can, but if you could refrain from it being AUT related that'd be grand!
