This is not a UCU Left document, it comes directly from the authors of the original alternative strategy, and is published in response to the document circulated in the names of the national officers of the union.
Extract from the introduction:
We welcome the reply from the ‘nationally elected officers’ (NEOs) to our Alternative Financial Strategy as part of the healthy debate that characterises our union. It is important that this critical issue is discussed before Congress so that delegates can contribute to discussion at Brighton.
It is worth noting that although the financial strategy has been endorsed by the majority of the National Executive Committee (NEC), a significant NEC minority (roughly one-third) does not regard this as a constructive way forward in the difficult times we face.
