Strike action Tuesday 3rd December 2013

    The strike action on 31st October succeeded in getting UCEA back to the table but disappointingly the employers threw away yet another chance to resolve the dispute, failing to make any improved offer, and leaving members to continue to face a 13% pay cut against inflation. It is important that members support the strike on December 3rd in order to keep pressure on the employers in the continued fight for a fair deal. UCU will continue to use all avenues and channels open to achieve a breakthrough in negotiations. Fuller details on the negotiations can be found at http://www.ucu.org.uk/index.cfm?articleid=6759 .

Please make sure that you come to the picket line.  It is very important that we show our collective unity on the picket line. Pickets will be arranged to cover both Stratford and Docklands campus between 7am – 2pm and will be arranged in three time slots 7-10; 9-12; 11-2. Please contact your UCU coordinator to let them know which picket duty slot you will be attending.

 Pickets on each site will be at:

  • Docklands:  Cyprus DLR, Car Park Barrier, Pedestrian Access by Sports Dock and if possible Pedestrian Access along Dockside.
  • Stratford:  Main Entrance, Cedars Road Car Park entrance (Main), Cedars Road Car Park (Mini), Ferns Road Car Park.
