Support striking UCU workers - 25 February (Feb 21, 2020)
UCU Strike Solidarity Assembly - Tuesday 25 February
With so many of us here in London who have children at College or University, it seems appropriate to let you know that the people who support our children through their years of further education are struggling! UCU - the University and College Union represents teachers and lecturers at further education establishments. They are asking you for support:
55,000 UCU members across the UK have started 14 days of strike action this week. Our fight is to defend our pensions, pay, working conditions and to secure equal pay and end the scourge of caualisation.
The employers and the government have been taken by surprise of the scale of our resistance and our determination to win. By striking to end casualisation we are also ensuring that we can give our students the education they deserve.
We are not alone in this fight. The whole of the trade union movement is with us. They too face the same insecure contracts, cuts in their wages and pensions. They recognise a victory for us will also be a victory for the whole of the working class movement.
Workers from across London will be attending the assembly to demonstrate their solidarity with our fight.
The assembly will be held on Tuesday 25 February at 6 PM at the Tudor Room, Imperial Hotel, 61 Russell Square, London WC1B 5BB.
