How to approach Week 3? Onwards and upwards!

Dear Sheffield UCU member,

We have arrived at Week 3 of the action, and our programme of things to keep you busy has just landed! Now is the time to join us on picket-lines, at our teach-outs, and on our Thursday march for International Womens Day to make sure the national talks reach a consensus as swiftly as possible. Don’t rely on your colleagues to do the job: we need you visible too!

Tomorrow we meet with Keith Burnett, previously missing in action, but now taking much more interest in events on campus, evident in his announcement last week that there would be no pay deductions for refusing to reschedule classes. We will be reporting the outcomes back to members at our open meeting on Wednesday, midday in the Students Union. Please come!

Our hardship fund continues to receive donations. If you could like to donate, or know anyone who does, the bank details are below:

Account name: UCU Sheffield 70 Hardship Fund
Sort code: 60-83-01
Account number: 20391171

Finally, we will be celebrating International Womens Day with a march on Thursday. Assemble at midday on Thursday at the Arts Tower. Working conditions are a feminist issue: pensions, gender pay gap, sexual harrassment and more. March with us!

Keep going all, you’re doing an excellent job!
