#KillTheBill IWGB Mobilisation meeting, Thursday 29 April, 6pm via Zoom — April 29, 2021

#KillTheBill IWGB Mobilisation meeting, Thursday 29 April, 6pm via Zoom

It’s time to mobilise and #KillTheBill! Join members from across your union for an online event to discuss mobilising to protest on May 1st and beyond.   The event will be Thursday 29 April at 6pm held via zoom.
REGISTER HERE!
We will discuss how the bill will affect members of the IWGB and the whole union. You can read more on the bill here.

As low paid workers, ignored and exploited, this bill is a direct attack on our right to protest and to tell the world about the injustices our members face.   Our victories at The University of London, at UCL and at Goldsmiths would have been impossible without our members standing together and protesting against their exploitation.

Join us to hear more about the bill and how we can beat it together. #We need YOU to stand with us again, and say NO to this bill!
UOL Women’s Committee — March 25, 2021

UOL Women’s Committee

The University of London Branch approved the creation of a Women’s Committee last year.

This committee is a core group of women members of the UoL Branch (IWGB) where we created this fundamental space to organize, support and develop ourselves.

This committee of the Universities of London Branch has been working and helping women members throughout this pandemic, organizing Workshops on Metal Health, Empowerment, Social Housing, cycle of violence, benefits and gender based violence. The committee also allows us to support each other to solve the problems we face.

This body has also become a place to make decisions and strategies within the branch with the objective of helping and supporting other women, which has made this committee a base of support and a single voice for all women of the branch, regardless of race, culture and religion, giving all members in this committee a fundamental role in the vision and future of our union.

We want to make this committee a force, a support and a source of solidarity among us, so that all women feel safe, valued and respected.

We invite all women in our branch to join this committee to continue building this project. If you would like to join us, please write to Maritza Chair Universities of London Branch maritzacastillocalle@iwgb.oc.uk

We also call on activists to financially support our branch, which has made possible the existence of this committee and the training cycles that have been developed. All the money you donate goes directly to supporting our members, campaigning and reaching new people.

Our Chair Maritza on the BBC this week! — January 29, 2021
Greenwich Security write back to VC — December 24, 2020

Greenwich Security write back to VC

On 15 December, University of Greenwich Vice Chancellor wrote individually to all security staff at UoG, following a series of visits she had made to meet staff individually.

These letters and visits were a response to the launch of the campaign for in-house and equality of terms and conditions by outsourced security officers, cleaners and porters at UoG.

In her letter, the Vice Chancellor made clear she refuses to negotiate with the security staff and our union the IWGB regarding our demands.

Today, the vast majority of the Greenwich security officers have written and signed a collective later in response to the VC, restating our demands and making clear we will not accept her attempts to undermine our union.

Read the security officers’ letter here:

Greenwich Security Vote To Strike! — December 23, 2020

Greenwich Security Vote To Strike!

After a rapid two-week turnaround ballot, IWGB members at the University of Greenwich have voted resoundingly in favour of strike action.

This is their first major step by Greenwich security officers, porters and cleaners in getting ready to win an END TO OUTSOURCING AT UoG!! 🔥

After years of being mistreated, undervalued and discriminated against, they are now coming together in strength to demand equality with their colleagues directly-employed by the university. 

The IWGB has seen victories at UoL, UCL and Goldsmiths, now we’re ready to end outsourcing at UoG!  ✉️📮💪

Strike action is no easy decision for our members to take: as low-paid workers any pay we lose has big effects on our lives. But we know that it is the only way that UoG management will listen 📣

The Greenwich outsourced workers need your support in achieving their aims! 

How can you help?

🐤 Retweet the announcement on Twitter

💻 Share the announcement on Facebook

📧 Send this blog to friends and colleagues

💸 Donate to the strike fund

✍️ Sign our petition calling for an end to outsourcing at UoG

If you have any ideas or want to get involved and support the campaign in any other ways, please get in touch via email.

We are building a movement to end outsourcing across London’s universities. Your support is vital to making that happen. Thank you for everything!
