ARU Chelmsford reps

On 20 September 2019 UCU staff and members of branches across the Eastern and Home Counties region took part in events as part of the Global Climate Strike. Successful events were held at, amongst other branches, ARU, University of Essex, Cambridge University, and Writtle. Please continue to let us know about any other events.



UCU strongly supports the efforts of the school strikers and successfully submitted a motion to the TUC conference calling for unions to take action on 20 September. The UCU motion can be found here: https://www.ucu.org.uk/article/10181/30-minute-solidarity-climate-stoppage

Jo Grady, the UCU’s general secretary, said:

“This [motion] signifies real support for the efforts of the school strikers and is a chance for workers to show we are behind them.”
