Start of action on pensions

This week has seen the start of working to contract to defend USS.

Here at UEA  members in departments such as Law, ITCS and NBS have held meetings to discuss what duties might fall outside their contract.  We have also seen the start of our Twitter presence  @UEA_UCU to spread news of the campaign.

Members of the committee were joined by UEA NUS students on a stall in the square on Wednesday to publicise to students why the campaign is happening, and ask for student support.  We are pleased to say many students were happy to take stickers to display their support.

 

Elsewhere branches have staged displays such as a mock funeral for the pension scheme at Goldsmiths,  and Southampton are encouraging staff to reclaim their lunch hours in a  ‘Let’s meet for lunch’ campaign.

 

Details of action, along with FAQ are here:  http://defenduss.web.ucu.org.uk/2011/10/12/action-rolling-out-across-the-sector/

 

If you’re inspired by any of these ideas of action and would like to know how you can do more for UCU@UEA contact ucu.office@uea.ac.uk

 

Best wishes

UCU@UEA Branch Campaign Committee
