UCU Left supporters urge a vote for Mandy Brown as the union’s vice president. Elections for UCU’s national executive committee (NEC) run from 1 to 26 February.

Mandy helped to lead a four-week strike at Lambeth College last year that stopped bosses imposing new, worse contracts.

She teaches English for Speakers of Other Languages (Esol) and has a long record of campaigning to defend education.

The elections come at a time when education is under huge attack.

Tory cuts threaten to close down entire colleges and snatch away the chance of education from working class students.

Mandy is standing on a platform of fighting cuts, defending education, campaigning for a pay rise for all workers, and opposing racism, Islamophobia and the government’s Prevent agenda.

UCU Left backs other candidates for NEC seats.

These are: Sue Abbott, Pura Ariza, Mark Campbell, Rachel Cohen, Sarah Foster, Margot Hill, Julie Hearn, Ioanna Ioannou, Dawn Livingston, Rhiannon Lockley, Allister MacTaggart, Julia Roberts, Lee Short, Sean Vernell, Sean Wallis, Elaine White and Saira Weiner.
