Build the rank and file!

The election of Jo Grady as UCU General Secretary earlier this year was a big step forward for the union.

The previous leadership had a record of compromising too soon in disputes and had never delivered the support for workplace organising needed to change the power balance in universities. Electing officials and NEC members committed to a more combative approach to organising is important, but it’s not sufficient, or an end in itself.

"No" to Agenda for Change (2004)

Published on: Sat, 24/05/2014 - 23:52

The Health Service Group Executive of the public-service workers' union Unison voted on 8 September to recommend "Yes" to Agenda for Change.
The recommendation goes to a special conference of the health sector of Unison in London on 7 October.
Agenda for Change is the government's proposal to restructure health-service pay. It would cut pay rates for a sizeable proportion of posts, and bring in longer working hours for a number of health service workers.
Rank and file activists in the Unison health sector have issued a "vote no" leaflet under the banner of the paper Healthworker.
