Pensions strike: 8 days to go


Dear Members, 

As I’m sure you know, next Thursday 22 Feb marks the beginning of UCU strike action. 

In our meeting on Monday (attended by approximately 110 University of London colleagues and almost 40 UCU members) a few questions were raised about organisation of the picket line. We’ve set up a picket line rota, so please do tell us when you’re available to show your solidarity and give your contact details so we can stay in touch during the strike. Please do this by Friday 16 Feb (or as soon as you can) so we can complete the rota and share with you next Monday/Tuesday:

On the first day of the strike it is so important that as many of us are on the picket line as possible. So the first day’s instructions are very simple. 

Where: Outside the gates of Senate House (Russell Square side)

When: 8am

We’ll provide placards and banners but if you’re feeling creative then bring your own! Wear warm and waterproof clothes!

Meanwhile, tomorrow (Thursday 15th) at 6pm, we will attend the UCU London Region Strike Organising workshop  – if you’d like to join us, email so we can arrange a meeting point.

All the best,

Tim Hall
Branch Chair
