Strike days: have you considered picketing?

Picketing on the strike days, 25th and 26th May

A strong presence on the day of strikes is a big boost to how effectively strike action works. Please consider joining members on the picket lines on the morning of the strike days. For those who’ve never done it before, it can be a fun way to chew over issues with colleagues you rarely get the chance to talk to about such things.

We’ll be picketing the main university buildings from 7:45 to 11:00 on both strike days next week. Report to the concourse in front of the Students’ Union from 7.45am onwards to get an armband and your choice of placard.  You can picket either your own building or another site.

If you plan to picket and haven’t contacted us, it would help if let us know at (or through your departmental contact) so we have an idea of numbers.
