The problem is that all such schemes assume that nothing changes for the proponents but that the working life of everyone else is disrupted.

Full time academics with career jobs are a small minority of UCU members. Most are in support roles or are casual academic staff.

The UCU proposal will throw the real burden on to teachers who will have to support university applications in August and those full time academics who will longer be able to use August and early September for research.

It won;t disrupt admissions staff for whom this is the busty time of the year under the current system and might result in more hours for hourly paid academic staff working in August and September when they currently earn nothing.

So, as usual the proposal simply favours those who put it forward.
