Rally for Respect

Respect FE: rally for Respect and your strike action

8 November 2023

As we gear up for next week's major strike action in further education (FE) colleges in England, I wanted to send my solidarity and remind you about Tuesday's mass rally and lobby of Parliament.

I am calling on the whole union to stand in solidarity with you and striking FE workers by joining the rally and I look forward to welcoming you and supporters. After the rally your branch will send a representative to meet with the college's constituency MP in Parliament, explain what we are fighting for and ask for their support. Details are as follows:

This will be the biggest wave of strike action to hit FE in years and your national union is giving 100% support to this important campaign and your action fighting for decent pay and for respect as education professionals.

See you on the picket line and at the rally.

In solidarity

Jo Grady
UCU general secretary
