Weʼre raising £8,000 to help support University of Brighton UCU members on the 8-day strike

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Members of the University and College Union, UCU, have voted 3 to 1 in support of industrial action over pay, equality, casualisation and workloads. The union has called on members in 60 universities to take strike action for eight days this term. UCU members at University of Brighton will be on strike between 25th November and 4th December. Members include academic and professional services staff. For more information about why we are striking please visit our blog.

Going on strike is always the last resort. But this is a battle against the corrosive effects on staff and students of the marketisation of Higher Education. Those who strike will have eight days of pay deducted from their wages. This will have a greater impact on those members who are on precarious or casual contracts, fractional contracts and also those who are hourly paid. It will also have an impact on those members who are working at lower academic grades and on professional Grade 6.

Finance is a necessary part of any fight. We are asking our supporters, fellow trade unionists and those of our own members who can, to chip in whatever they can afford to help us to defray the cost of the strike for our members.
