Thursday’s strike activity

What’s happening tomorrow?

We will be picketing at various entrances (Main Building, Heath Park and other locations as organised by departmental reps) from 8am. Please don’t feel that if you can’t make it at 8 you can’t come along – get there whenever you can! The starting point is Main Building, so if you’re not sure where to picket, please come here for further instructions.

Picketing materials (armbands, placards, hi-vis jackets etc) can be collected from the UCU office, 49B Park Place, from 11 am today, Wednesday 21st, although there will also be supplies available on Thursday morning at the picket.

At 11am we will be having a rally for members and supporters outside Main Building. Pickets are asked to make their way to this. We have a range of supporters offering solidarity and who have agreed to speak at the rally, including Joanne DUCU, Jo Stevens MP, Lianne Wood AM, Leader of Plaid Cymru and Jenny Rathbone AM.

From 12 o’clock, there will be entertainment from Brass 12 and Tom Duggan. For full details of this and Teach Outs, please click here for the Program.

Don’t forget the strike continues on Friday as well and we will need pickets and supporters then as well – watch this space for further details.
