Wednesday 16th March, 1pm-3pm
Birkbeck, 43 Gordon Square, Room B03
On March 22nd and 24th, UCU members will be going on strike over pay freezes (or pay cuts, when adjusted for inflation) and attacks on their pension scheme.
The meeting is for Bloomsbury students and union members, and will provide the ideas and the materials we need to get the campus to support the UCU strike. We’ll be handing out flyers and posters, getting a rota sorted, talking about how to convince fellow students and colleagues to go to the pickets and not to their classes, and preparing other actions for a strong, effective strike in the run up to the TUC march on March 26th.
Bloomsbury Fightback! is a group that brings together students and union members who wish to create a broad oppositional front against austerity in the university and more generally.
We’ll also be flyering on campus every lunchtime (meet outside SOAS), and the local tube stations. Come join in, the more the better – because the union keeps us strong.
