UCU open letter to Novus MD

31 March 2021

In the letter Andrew reiterated that Peter Cox, the managing director of Novus, has so far 'refused to meet several of UCU's representatives to discuss health and safety issues nationally' and confirmed that 'UCU have during this dispute already offered to meet with you with the assistance of ACAS and that I have now been in contact with ACAS'.
