Thank you for supporting our action
Brighton UCU thanks everyone who supported us in our fight against compulsory redundancies. The attendance at our virtual picket lines and rallies by other trade unionists, and the messages of support and generous financial donations we received from UCU and other union branches were crucial in helping us bring our dispute to a negotiated resolution. We are particularly grateful to the Brighton students who organised to support us.
The Brighton UCU Coordinating Committee would also like to thank the members of Brighton UCU. They rose to the challenge of compulsory redundancies by voting overwhelmingly for industrial action in defence of their colleagues and taking five days of strike action before Xmas.
Monday’s rally gives us an opportunity to express our thanks for all the solidarity we received, and to turn our attention to the struggles against attacks on jobs taking place in other universities and colleges. Sign up: bit.ly/Brighton8Feb
