Leicester UCU on Strike!

Published: 1st February, 2023

Wednesday 1 Feb saw 70000 UCU members on strike, along with over 500000 workers in the UK. Thanks to all those who made our pickets incredibly strong, and joined us on the rally in the city centre, where we joined other unions on strike in Leicester.

Here are a selection of pictures of the day.
