Over the last year, policy development work has taken place around the area of disciplinary policies and procedures. The current policy and associated procedure has been in place for a number of years and it was felt that a review was necessary in order to create an amended policy which reflects the changing nature of employment within the University.
A University-wide consultation process, allowing all staff, at all levels, the opportunity to comment on the revised procedures has been ongoing through August. The consultation period is due to end on 16th September 2011.
Drafts of revised Disciplinary and Capability procedures are available at
If you would like to comment on the new procedures, you can do so via the following methods:
- Email the Employee Relations Team at
- Send written comments to Employee Relations, Room 401 All Saints
- Speak to your manager and ask them to forward your views to the Employee Relations Team
For members of staff who do not have easy access to email and/or the internet, hard copies of the procedures can be obtained from Christine Young in Employee Relations (extension 3310).
Additionally local Facilities managers will be provided with hard copies of this message and the draft procedures.
The University is keen to hear your views on the draft policy and procedures.

A meeting to form and launch a new round of 'cartels' (small workgroups devoted to reading around a specific topic in
psychoanalysis) will be held on Wednesday September 21 in Room
0.07 of MMU John Dalton Building (on Oxford Road, opposite the BBC, location map: http://www.mmu.ac.uk/travel/allsaints/)
The meeting will run from 6.00-8.00, will begin with a talk on the problems of teaching and learning about psychoanalysis and the rationale for Lacan's development of 'cartels' as an alternative to university forms of education. We will then discuss the formation of new cartels for the year ahead.
Since the MMU Print project started rolling out, in May 2011, over 200 new Multi-functional Printers have been distributed across the University.
We are currently approaching the end of Stage 2 of the project - Student Printing:
104 new printers have been rolled out at all sites, new MMU Print cash payment kiosks, online payment and online transaction history systems are all in place. All these will be made available on the http://www.mmu.ac.uk/student/ web site in due course.
This week we are migrating student accounts in GPAS (the old print charging system) to Safecom (the new print charging system). This means that from this Friday, 9 Sept, we plan to switch on the charges for student printing along with the new MMU Print Kiosks and ePay system. All accounts that are in the positive will be transferred whilst those in their overdraft will simply have an empty account as overdrafts are banned on the new system.
The new kiosks are located in each Library (except at Crewe, where this is located in the Student Zone) with the old 'grey'
ones being reused where appropriate.
Following feedback from students who have used the new system during August, we have produced new materials (including web information, at http://www.mmu.ac.uk/student/ ) to help guide students on how best to use the MMU Pint.
Q Are there any changes to classroom systems?
A Yes, all classroom technology (AV PCs) has been upgraded to
Windows 7 .
*****ALL CLASSROOM SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE YOU TO LOGIN*****
All guest lecturers will require an MMU guest login (please call
