Since our picket lines ended last week it feels like a lot has changed – indeed it has. The Coronavirus situation has, quite understandably, overtaken all our lives. Whilst we understand that there is a lot of fear and worry right now, we would like to assure you that we are working with the University to promote the needs of our members, and indeed all staff and students. The health and wellbeing of the entire University of Leicester community is our primary concern.
Locally as a branch, we will be moving all our meetings to virtual platforms and we will contact people with information about accessing those as required. If you have any questions or concerns we encourage you to get in touch. In addition, keep checking the dedicated University webpages as the situation can, and will, change on a daily basis: https://le.ac.uk/coronavirus
