University of Nottingham UCU strike picket - October 2013

University of Nottingham UCU strike picket – October 2013

In 2013-14 and 2014-2015 I was President of the University of Nottingham branch of UCU. During that time I led the local branch through a national pay dispute (13-14) and then a national pensions dispute (14-15).

At the end of the 2014-15 academic year I will stand down as President. I feel I’ve done my bit.

I never intended to take on the role of branch President – but during that time I have been reminded why I believe that we all have an obligation to both join our union and participate in it.

As an employee it is hard to challenge anything unless we act collectively and organise.

The branch website is here.
