UCU day of action against precarious work - 24 November 2016

UCU day of action against precarious work - 24 November 2016

I support secure contracts
Thursday 24 November 2016 is UCU's anti-casualisation day of action in both higher and further education.
Already we have reports of many branches organising events. Events include recruitment stalls, advice surgeries, open meetings, campaign launches, or in some cases events that celebrate recent positive agreements.

A national priority campaign

Thanks to our union's work, there is growing press and political interest in this campaign and this provides us with vital leverage in pressuring our employers. The fight against precarious contracts is one of UCU's cross-sectoral priority campaigns. The campaign has real momentum and its impact is already being felt nationally and on the ground for our members.

In recent weeks alone, we have seen significant campaigning and negotiating successes at Sussex, Coventry and Essex universities.
In the coming weeks, UCU will be accelerating this campaigning work in both sectors and providing branches with new resources to take the fight to your employers.
The day of action on the 24th is a great opportunity to raise the profile of this issue among your members. Please play your part and think about how you can support the day.
