We are saddened to learn of the death of Nita Sanghera, president-elect of UCU.
Nita was a fierce and passionate campaigner for workers everywhere, always supporting union branches across the country, and a tireless campaigner against racism. Her support and encouragement for many black women activists will not be forgotten.
Nita was about to become the first black woman President of UCU.
The photos show Nita visiting the picket lines at University of Leeds to give us her support.
Branch president Ben Plumpton says: “Nita was solidarity personified.”
Rest in power.
