9 Ways to Support the Strike
November 27, 2013 § Leave a comment
On the 3rd of December unionised staff at Goldsmiths will be on strike again. This is a continuation of the same dispute that brought them out on Halloween. Since 2009 staff have been forced to take an effective 13% pay cut. Despite attempts at negotiation UCEA, the organisation that represents all the different university managements, has refused to consider the staff’s plea. Note that they’re only asking to get back 3%, whilst the pay cut is 13%. This action is a last resort to get fair pay.
You can’t be penalised for not going into any class that does take place on December 3rd. The student union has been given clear assurances that departments are not allowed to discipline students for sessions missed due to strike action. If your department does choose to anyway, come to us and we will support you wholeheartedly.
