The UCU union has achieved a union recognition agreement with Coventry University Group (CUG) following a protest.
CUG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Coventry University with worse pay and conditions.
CUG had previously refused to recognise the UCU and set up the Staff Consultative Group.
The union held a protest last Wednesday and threatened to call for an academic boycott of the university.
But a meeting last week reached an agreement in principle to have “voluntary recognition” of the UCU.
It isn’t clear if the Staff Consultative Group will continue to operate.
