Organising the fight back against mass layoffs - Zoom call


May 27, 2020

While members of the UK’s UCU (University College Union) debate whether to accept our employer’s paltry offer on our industrial dispute over pay, equality, casualisation, and workload, casualised staff are running out of time. Many of us will be unemployed before any future mandate for industrial action.

In this urgent meeting, we will discuss how to put the pressure on our union to take serious campaigning action now, to fight for secure working conditions for all of us, and our options for wildcat action, such as marking boycotts and coordinating with other unions like the IWGB.

Speakers including:

  • Dominick Lawton (UC Berkeley, former head steward UAW 2865)
  • Annie Goh (UCU Equalities rep for UAL and newly elected NEC member)
  • Jordan Osserman & Aimée Le (Corona Contract)
  • Roberto Mozzachiodi (Goldsmiths Justice for Workers / UCU Caseworker)

You can also read the CoronaContract’s latest demands on UCU here.
