The end of 2013 saw major student struggles for “Cops off campus” – sparked by the occupation of University of London’s headquarters Senate House, which in turn was inspired by the ongoing struggle of outsourced UoL workers for their rights.
The outsourced workers’ 3 Cosas campaign has been a model of dynamism and militancy, and has already won significant concessions from management. The workers are planning to strike again on 27-29 January.
The University of London branch of the Independent Workers of Great Britain (IWGB) trade union and the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts (NCAFC) are co-organising a speaker tour to spread awareness of and build support for 3 Cosas, and to promote discussion of recent student-worker struggles and how they can contribute to reviving our movements.
Speakers from both IWGB and NCAFC will speak at as many meeting as possible.
The speaker tour will be from Monday 17th February. To book a meeting at your union branch, workplace, university or college, get in touch with Daniel Cooper: firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 07840 136 728
