External groups

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, UCU cannot call on its members to take part in unlawful acts of protest. This may include some actions of some groups. Where a group arranges a specific lawful act of protest in pursuit of aims in keeping with UCU policy, it is up individual UCU members, branches, associations, regions, and devolved nations to decide for themselves whether and in what way they wish to support this.
