Support and Solidarity to Striking University and College Union Members in UK

On behalf of our faculty union, we offer our solidarity to the UK university worker members of the University and College Union (UCU) who are currently on strike to protect their right to a fair pension and fair pay.

We are locked in arms in the collective fight against manufactured austerity and the corporatization of higher education.

Fair pay and benefits for university workers today and in the future are vital to maintaining the strength of quality, affordable public education. Our students deserve the very best education, our communities deserve thoughtful research and inspiring arts, and we all deserve equity, respect, and fair pay and benefits at work.

With our best wishes and support,
