Brighton Students Union supports the strike
Brighton Students Union has released a statement in support of the upcoming UCU strikes
Following the outcome of our recent survey, Brighton Students’ Union will be supporting the upcoming UCU industrial strike action which will take place for 14 days across 4 weeks in February and March 2020.
We now owe it to our students to back them up. UCU members, attend your local picket lines and show that you stand shoulder to shoulder with your students. Unison members, please join the pickets during your allocated breaks and lunchtimes.
If the support from our students union has convinced you to join UCU so that you can show your students that you are willing to fight for a cause that they are behind, visit ucu.org.uk/join
The big picture
At this time, it's easy to become focused on the details of the action. But let's not lose sight of why we're doing this… [1/5] pic.twitter.com/2wFqIjyXL2

It's so hard to have to explain to students why we're about to strike again but I come to work every morning and sit here at my desk and weep before spending the day giving everything I have to students.
