UCU@UEA Strike

UCU@UEA committee is preparing for the day of action on 30th November which has its focus on defending public sector pensions.  For us in HE, the erosion of the pension scheme could be seen as a preparatory softener for private sector competitors to enter HE (see http://defenduss.web.ucu.org.uk/files/2011/11/ussvaluationnov11_ucubriefingnote.pdf)

Get involved in the week before the strike:

  • Recruit a colleague
  • Talk to a non-member & explain why the pension dispute represents an erosion of publically-funded HE
  • Find other members in your department who are going to be on strike – can you march together?
  • Find friends from other workplaces (schools, HMRC, physios etc) who will be on strike on 30th & arrange to meet up for the rally
  • Sign up to the Facebook event

GET INVOLVED ON NOVEMBER 30TH!

Join other UCU members on the pickets at UEA

11.30 match departs.

12.00 rally at City Hall steps

2.30 post rally discussion at United Reformed church, Princes Street.
