Academic common room

I thought she would get elected. Given the stuff blowing up about Trinity, Cam voting to leave the USS, I think she will have a huge task on her hands. Sadly I think she will realise soon that it’s much easier to tweet witty critique of the bosses to your followers than to actually lead the union. All the theory in the world isn’t going to help then and she has never even led a branch (and we know that early career academia isn’t the best for developing leadership skills).

Well, the pensions thing is already kicking off now. JG has written a letter urging Trinity to change its mind. I doubt that will happen and I think the USS is in real trouble.
The Congress happenings were ludicrous. The GC academics who tabled the motion reported that delegates came up to them in tears saying that they had been too scared to vote in favour of it. That’s the sort of culture this idiot is fostering. I have also resigned. Pissed off about my pension though but with someone like this in charge of the union, I think it’s pretty worthless anyway so I would rather spend my 25 quid a month on something else.
