The following email was sent out earlier today to all members of UCU at the University of Manchester.
Dear UMUCU Colleague
UMUCU Executive Committee congratulates and celebrates the magnificent demonstration against education cuts that took place in Manchester on 24th November. The demonstration was an inspiration not just to us in UCU but to the whole of the trade union movement. UMUCU Executive Committee fully supports the peaceful occupation of the Roscoe Building Lecture Theatre and urges our members to support the occupation and attend their regular seminars, teach-ins and anti-cuts meetings. UMUCU Executive Committee further supports all planned peaceful protests by staff and walkouts of students on the day the fee rises are debated in Parliament, as well as the next National Day of Action on 30th November.
