Attacks ahead in lecturers' union

Sally Hunt, the right-wing incumbent, has been re-elected general secretary of the University and College Union.

She won 73% of the vote against Mark Campbell, the candidate of the Socialist Workers’ Party-led “UCU Left”.

Hunt’s leadership so far has been characterised by witch-hunts against the left and an eagerness to roll over on industrial issues such as pensions and pay. Her post-election address to members, Hunt announced plans for a “review” into the union’s structures.

A review conducted by a conservative bureaucracy can only end badly; rank-and-file UCU activists should fight it.
