Information from Management

A gentle reminder that from Thursday September 16, we start the gradual return to the workplace at CEC and LU. On Tuesday, the Government announced plans to lift several restrictions from 29 September. The Governments new announcement does not affect the decisions made previously by the Vice Chancellor and the plan for a gradual return still applies. However, details in the CEC plan could be adjusted due to the new regulations and if this is the case you will be informed. For questions, please contact your line manager. More information is also available on both CEC’s Staff pages and LU’s Staff pages, if you click on the links below.
