Donate to the Sheffield UCU Hardship Fund

What is the Sheffield UCU Hardship Fund, and how to contribute.

What is the Sheffield UCU Hardship Fund?

The Sheffield UCU Hardship Fund provides a vital lifeline to branch members who have lost income as a result of participating in Industrial Action.

It is made up of solidarity donations and branch funds, and is designed for members who are disproportionately hit financially by taking part in industrial action, e.g:

  • sole-income households
  • members on hourly-paid, part-time or fixed-term contracts
  • people who have recently had periods of lower pay due to parental/adoption/sick leave or other industrial action, or due to other personal circumstances.

Members can lose up to 100% of pay for participating in industrial action.

Donating to the Fighting Fund is one of the best ways you can show solidarity with Sheffield UCU members if you are able to.
