strikeJust a couple of things to quickly mention re the ongoing Higher Education pay dispute.

The employers have still failed to increase their current derisory offer of 1.1%.

Following the strikes last month, UCU are now instituting a series of rolling strikes across different HE institutions.

The University of London strike will take place on 22nd June, which is next Wednesday.

Just like last time, the IWGB is completely in solidarity with this action, and we would ask members to respect the strike, and remind them that no-one need cross the picket line.

In other news, having voted at the last branch meeting to formally ballot for strike action ourselves, the IWGB will be conducting a postal ballot in the next few weeks.

More details will follow, but the plan is to coordinate any action with that of other unions (UNISON will probably also be balloting) and try and organise a full-scale shutdown of the University later in the year!
