Strike action: Wednesday 1, Thursday 2 and Friday 3 December

With deep frustration, we are having to take our stance of last resort to get UUK and our employers back to the negotiation table over USS: we’ll be manning the picket lines on Wednesday 1, Thursday 2 and Friday 3 December – next week. This is a strange time to be trying to organise a picket line: so, for those of you who can’t make it to the real life picket lines for any reason, we’ll be running a virtual picket too, offering support, company, discussion and virtual tea and cake. On the main pickets, fancy dress – or, at the very least, bright colours – will be greatly welcomed.

We are going to hold a branch meeting on Thursday 25th at 1.00 to discuss more details. Meanwhile we are stocking up on posters, placards, hats and armbands, which we hope will reach us in time – it’s a tall order for HQ to send out everything in good time!

All input is greatly appreciated. We are on new territory: we would like to organise teach-outs (if we can get the spaces in time) but will want help with that. We need to know what you think, and how you are able to show your solidarity. Please come to the branch meeting: or if you can’t come, please email us, or contact your rep to make sure your voice is heard.
