30th Jan: Building the Fightback and Getting the Leadership We Need

UCU Left open meeting


Speakers Include:

Bell Ribeiro-Addy MP. Member of Parliament for Streatham

Phil Clarke. Vice President, National Education Union

Member of the striking French teachers’ union

Member of PCS National Executive

Maria Chondrogianni. UCU NEC election candidate for Vice President

Deepa Govindarajan Driver. UCU NEC election candidate for Honorary Treasurer

As we prepare to join teachers, civil servants and train drivers for a mass strike on Wednesday 1st, and with elections for UCU Vice President, Treasurer and the NEC opening on 26th January, this meeting will discuss how we get the national leadership we need to mount a fightback that can win.

Our planned 18 days of strike action starting on 1st February has been called because the Higher Education Committee (HEC) listened to demands from branches and voted against attempts by the General Secretary to water down action and delay the fight. 

UCU Left members were decisive in making this happen and have pushed hard in further and higher education for escalating action coordinated with other unions.

How do we ensure that the democratic processes in our union are respected and improved so that we are able to build the powerful action we need to defend our pay, pensions, job security and working conditions? 

How do we make UCU a real fighting, member-led union?

Come and join the discussion with speakers from NEU and PCS and hear from UCU Left candidates in the elections.
