This branch notes:
- The overwhelming opposition to the “Evolving Goldsmiths” programme across the institution.
- That the programme was drawn up without consulting staff and students.
- SMT’s refusal to pause the “Evolving Goldsmiths” programme despite the unions’ request for meaningful consultation over the challenges faced by the College.
This branch instructs our regional official to declare a “failure to agree” with the College as per our Disputes Resolution Procedure and to trigger a local dispute unless SMT agree to pause the process and to enter into formal consultation about how best to secure the College’s future.
