General election result a win for workers

5 July 2024

Labour's general election win is the result trade unionists needed after 'fourteen long years of Tory misrule', said UCU.

UCU general secretary Jo Grady said: 'This result is a win for trade unionists who have endured fourteen long years of Tory misrule, but Labour must now seize the moment and meaningfully shift the balance of power towards working people. We need the New Deal for Working People implemented in full alongside massive investment in public services, including sustainable public funding for colleges and universities. Anything less would leave Labour open to accusations of being Tories in red clothing, depress its new voting coalition, and open the door to the far right'.
