Back the left in UCU elections

Issue No. 2439

Elections are on in the UCU union at a time when further and higher education is under savage attack.

Workers face job cuts, course closures, privatisation and bullying bosses. Yet their UCU leaders recently retreated from a fight to defend workers’ pensions.

UCU Left, which Socialist Workers Party members are part of, is standing several candidates who want a fighting union that can defend education.

Candidates for the union’s national executive committee are Allister MacTaggart, Amy Jowett, Carlo Morelli, Mandy Brown, Marion Hersh, Nina Doran, Pura Ariza and Rhiannon Lockley. The election ends on 27 February.
