Online event with Jon Hegerty, Head of bargaining, organising, campaigns & education at UCU (University and College Union)
The situation for staff in UK universities has been more than precarious for years. Since 2019, staff pay has been cut by 25%, while university vice-chancellors and senior managers have six-figure salaries. Members of the University and College Union (UCU) have organised themselves in an impressive way. Since November 2022, more than 70,000 staff at 150 universities have gone on strike for several days.
We talk to Jon Hegerty about union organising, methods, structure tests, headwinds, pink lipsticks and strike action!
