We need you – and you are so welcome!
We know you can hear us.
And we know that you see us every day, too.
Just like we see you going to work.
All this despite our shared concerns about the strike, the future of our sector, and the care that our students and we ourselves deserve. But most importantly, despite the circumstances and negative conditions that we are fighting.
With five days of strike left, we need meaningful resolution.
And we know that you want that as well.
But we cannot reach a positive and empowering resolution for us all without your active help, support and involvement.
We don’t want more strike action any more than you do. Believe us. But in order to get that resolution, we need you on the picket lines – we certainly need to you not to cross picket lines, material or virtual.
We feel like we are in one of the fights of our lives…
Please join us, get involved and let’s win this fight. Do this for yourself, for your colleagues who are suffering now, for our students, and for the future of academia in the UK.
As workers, as members of this special community, and as global citizens, we fight for fairness and equality.
