UWE UCU will be taking 2 days of industrial strike action this month, on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th September.
Our academic colleagues are taking action on behalf of all staff in Higher Education, just like UNISON members did last week and since last year.
None of us like to cross another union’s picket line, so If you do have to work on campus on these dates, please show your support to the pickets. Stop at the picket lines and talk to them about their action, maybe drop off some snacks and if you are able to, consider taking out some hot drinks to them.
We too will be taking industrial strike action again on 2nd and 3rd October with picket lines on each campus. Further details on how to sign up for a picket line will be circulated soon.
Remember, do not take on work that would normally be undertaken by striking workers.
