UCU have teamed up with US trade union organiser Jane McAlevey to offer UCU members free attendance at her six session online “Strike School” this September and October.
Cardiff UCU activists are very excited to take part in this training. McAlevey is a fantastic organiser who recently completed her PhD on trade unions at CUNY and worked as a postdoc at Harvard Law School. We have been gaining inspiration from her books No Shortcuts, A Collective Bargain, and Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell).
We encourage members of Cardiff UCU who might like to attend the Strike School to join this webinar. In this session, Jane McAlevey will talk to UCU members and general secretary Jo Grady about growing UCU branches, winning disputes and keeping workplaces safe.
If you attend this webinar, or cannot attend but would like to attend the Strike School with fellow Cardiff UCU activists, please reply to this email to let us know. But please do not register for the six session Strike School yet, as the registration process will be clarified by UCU closer to the time.
