Significant donations received into local hardship fund

Donations have been pouring into our local branch Hardship Fund from individuals and other branches, including Edinburgh and Brunel with whom we are twinned as part of the UCU Grassroots Twinning Campaign. In all we have recently received donations totalling more than £3,500

The twinning campaign connects mandated branches with non-mandated branches in order to foster solidarity and help raise funds to provide financial support for our members who are taking part in Assessment and Marking Boycott.

This is really vital support which helps ensure that branches taking action are not disproportionately affected financially. It has been organised by activists across the branches in a show of solidarity.

The union’s strength is in its membership and the greater our number, the stronger we are. Membership is open to staff and students in the UK. Join UCU and have the strength of the union around you.

Thank you to all branch members who continue to participate in ASOS including the marking and assessment boycott. Together we will win.
