UNISON - University of Nottingham Branch

Message of solidarity to UCU

Dear UCU,


I’m writing on behalf of the UNISON branch at University of Nottingham to offer our solidarity with your strike on 25-26 May 2016.

We support your fight against an insulting pay offer, which our union too has rejected. We also support your fight against casualisation, part of the campaign by employers to push down wages, terms and conditions for all workers in HE.

As colleagues at University of Nottingham we are aware that your strike too is about campaigning for more respect for the trade unions from our employer – your fight is our fight!

The anti-union laws, unfortunately, make it hard to support your strike in anything but words but we are looking forward to working together in the months ahead to improve pay for all of our members, including through our joint campaign for the living wage. 

You are providing an inspiring example – solidarity forever! The union makes us strong!

UNISON, University of Nottingham Branch
