UCU Live online ballot launch: 7.30pm Thursday 26 January

23 January 2023

This Thursday, 26 January, at 7.30pm we will be hosting a UCU Live to launch the next wave of our UCU Rising campaign.

Our sector is at a crossroads.

We can either sit back and allow it to be completely overtaken by an ideology that will rip up our jobs, terms and conditions, and the education we provide to millions of students every year. Or we can stand up and demand something better. I say we stand up, and I know you will too.

I believe that through a mixture of mass support on picket lines, and returning an even bigger turnout and YES vote, we can win the disputes and deliver a ground-breaking agreement for higher education staff.

Please join our president Janet Farrar and myself on Thursday evening to hear about how we're going to win and what you can do to help. 

Join us at 7.30pm on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.

The longer the picket line the shorter the dispute!

Jo Grady
UCU general secretary
