Message from Branch Treasurer regarding Local Fighting Fund

Dear member, 

I am writing to you to appeal for a donation to the Cardiff UCU Fighting Fund. Many of you participated in the ballot for action over pay and conditions and USS with 90% of respondents voting for action short of strike (ASOS). Staff who are taking part in ASOS in the form of the marking and assessment boycott are losing 50% of their pay every month because of their action. In real terms this means they are losing from £1,300 -£2,100 every month. 

Cardiff UCU are supporting members taking part in MAB – paying £30 per day of pay deducted. We have paid out over £17,000 already, but to support those staff who have taken action throughout July we need more funding – at least £15,000. 

If you are not taking ASOS / MAB action please support your colleagues who are by making a minimum of 10% salary donation to the Cardiff UCU Fighting Fund. 

Account Name: UCU Cardiff LA12 Fighting Fund 
Sort code: 60-83-01
Account no: 20341260

Or through the branch GoFundMe (3.15% of your donation is kept by GoFundMe). 

Thank you for your support. 

Yours in solidarity,

Phil Parkes
Cardiff UCU Branch Treasurer
