Organising to win a yes vote for strike action to break the pay freeze in Higher Education

What? A meeting for activists in Higher Education who are building for a yes vote in national industrial action ballot(s) to break the pay freeze in our sector. 

Where? SOAS: Brunei Gallery, B102 (opposite main entrance, first floor).

When? Monday 16th September: 6pm (UNISON Ballot opens 18th September).

WhyA five-year pay freeze has meant a 13% cut in real terms pay for staff in Higher Ed. All nationally recognised unions in Higher Education have rejected the current 1% final offer this year and UNISON are moving to ballot for strike action (other unions are very likely to as well). It is essential we get a strong yes vote to take meaningful, coordinated industrial action. Let's get organised to win a resounding 'yes' and move to the next steps. Campaign materials will be available at the meeting. 

Who? Any activists in a union in Higher Education who can help build for national industrial action. Student activists who can help are welcome.
