Don't let them get Guy Stoate

Issue No. 2254

Delegates raised cases of victimisation of union reps.

Guy Stoate, the president of UCU Cymru, faces disciplinary action after a lecturer alleged that Guy called him a “scab”.

“Management say they are moving to discipline Guy,” says Ian Bosworth from Coleg Morgannwg UCU.

“We had a series of hurried discussions, and with an hour’s notice called a mass rally and 75 people turned up. That’s out of a lecturer workforce of around 220.

“There was a defiant mood. We plan to call an emergency branch meeting and start a strike ballot to defend Guy.”
