Extinction Rebellion (XR) - UCU statement

16 October 2019

UCU has clarified its current position with regards to Extinction Rebellion given that there's currently no official UCU policy.

UCU has a long history of support for campaigns against climate change, and we support the right to protest and take action on this and other issues. However, at this current time the union does not include Extinction Rebellion (XR) among its affiliate groups and it does not currently have any agreed union-wide policy regarding XR or its actions.

As such, it is up to individual UCU members, branches, associations, regions, and devolved nations to decide for themselves whether and in what way they wish to support XR.
