I was invited to speak at the UCU Left National Conference and immediately agreed as I firmly believe we need to build stronger links with academics at such an important time for our sector. UCU Left have now opened their event out to UNISON left activists in Higher Ed as well.
This is very welcome, as we've had real unity in action lately and taken successful nationally coordinated strike action together only last week, so it's crucial we are well organised and we build stronger ties for the future. I think this is also a good opportunity to share experiences and learn lessons from each other about how we have worked as a left in our different unions.
So maybe I'll see you there? Book your place here: http://uculeft.org/2013/10/ucu-left-national-conference/
