UCU Live: Respect FE online launch, 6.30pm, Thursday 2 March

24 February 2023

Please join me online at 6.30pm next Thursday 2 March for a very special UCU Live event to launch the Respect FE campaign and e-ballot.

As you know all too well, real terms pay in FE has been shrinking for years but now the cost of living crisis has made it even more urgent that we win a fair deal for college staff. That's why we're running an e-ballot to gauge members appetite for national strike action on pay, workload and national bargaining.

The e-ballot opens the following day Friday 3 March and you'll receive an email with a link to vote.

The results of the consultation will be considered by a special FE sector conference where the next steps of the campaign and possible national aggregate ballot will be decided.

Whatever your views we want you to have your say so please join this online event on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter and hear from me and other speakers from the national union on the Respect FE campaign.

See you there!

Jo Grady
UCU general secretary
