In response to plans for massive cuts to their pensions, university workers are going on strike for an unprecedented 14 days!
These cuts will fundamentally change the nature of higher education pensions, and are just part of the ongoing process of marketisation negatively impacting students and staff alike.
The strike starts on Thursday 22 February (8am–12noon), and we need to maximise support on the picket line for staff who are having to sacrifice a big proportion of their wages in order to fight for their pensions.
We especially need support at the central University of London at Senate House, where we have very few students of our own. IWGB will be supporting the UCU (University and College Union) strike and there will be drums, vuvuzelas, music and more to drive home the message: ‘Hands off our pensions’.
Please join the picket line and demonstration on day one from 8am. See you there!
