membership and organisation of the Association and the relationship of the
Association with other trade unions and professional organisations)
Salaries and Cradiur (winch will include a debate on the General Salary
Policy and Grading Structure policy docunent surnnarised in the February
Officers (questions concerning legal defence., academic freedom, contacts
with Parliament and the Press., and international affairs).
Members are invited to send Motions for Council on any of the above subjects to the
Hon. Secretary as soon as possible and before 14 Narch 1V’lO.
Since the establishment of the Resolutions Corujttee which r.eets in advance of
Council to prepare Composite Lotions, the deadline for sending Notions for Council
to Headquarters has now been brourht fonard to such an extent that it makes it
impossible to arrange a Ceneral ieeting to discuss proposed Motions from Belfast
MIT in tine. Accordinzly, the Conmdttee feels that the only solution is to
submit such ilotions as are received and to debate then at a General fleeting,
together iith those from the other Local Associations, when these are circulated
by Headquarters. Lny Motion which proves unacceptable to the membership can of
course be withdrawn from the Council Agenda after that fleeting.
A Motion has been received from Pr. MM. Steer (Botany), under Salaries and Gradings
t•Staff on the Senior Lecturer/Reader scale who fail to maintain the
level of productivity expected for those grades over an extended
period of time (3.-5 years) should be demoted to the top of the
UGC Report an Piissian and Russian Studies in British Universities
The March l20 Bulletin, which is heinz distributed with this Newsletter, features
an article an the above Report. We do not have the complete Peport., but any
member wishing to see a Sutrary, prepared and circulated by Veadquarters, should
contact the Hon. Secretary. The Vice--Chancellor invited flelfast AUTs corents
on the Report before making his reply to the UGC and, although time did not
permit us to contact the general membership on this subject, we did consult
those in the relevant subject areas. Any other member who wishes to conmient or
make his/her views known to Headquarters on this matter should contact the lion.
Secretary as soon as possible.
