Focus on UCU Strike Action

At last night’s meeting it was decided that our primary focus over the next month would be on raising support for and awareness of UCU strike action. We will be doing weekly stalls across campuses with this aim in mind. UCU members are also organising stalls and a teach-in explaining strikes and unions. We also agreed that we need to be going into as many lectures as possible to explain the issue. We are awaiting a timetable of various lectures but in the meantime please take it upon yourselves to speak at any you attend/find.

Stalls:

Please help out at stalls. The more the merrier. Also, if you can think of ways to make them more fun/eye-catching then that would be great (performances, posters, etc.).

Moulsecoomb – Monday 12-2pm – contact Nyika at nyikasuttie@hotmail.co.uk

Falmer – Tuesday (time tbc) – contact Megan on 07828649268

Grand Parade – no stall available until Thurs 24th but leafleting there next Thursday 12-2pm – contact Ollie on 07896090074 oroliverfournier@peacemail.com

Everyone organising stalls make sure you have: posters, leaflets, people, strike fund bucket, banners (if you can find any), fun stuff…

Also a reminder that nominations for SU elections close soon – the 9th February – so if you wish to stand then don’t forget.

We will be hosting a band night at Hector’s House (pub next to Grand Parade) on 22nd February. Please come and spread the word.

Next meeting will be on Wednesday at Moulsecoomb, exact details to follow.
