The strike on 1 February, coinciding with strikes by thousands of workers of other unions in Leeds, will be one of the most significant strike days in the city in recent decades. Join the UCU picket lines and then, if you can, from 12pm the march and rally organised by Leeds trades unions council which is likely to be very big.
On the day, please sign in at the pink gazebo by the university main entrance so the picket organisers can arrange to cover entrances in priority order. (If you need to go direct to a picket line, let the picket organisers know on the pickets WhatsApp group.)
The sign up form for picketing includes a question on any arrangements that the committee could make to enable you to take part in the picket.
If you can’t take part in person, you can take part in the ‘digital picket line’ by using social media to encourage members to support the collective action and to encourage colleagues to join the union.
On strike days a running picket circumnavigates the main campus. No need to sign up separately, sign up for picketing as normal then leave your picket line to join the start of the running picket, 9.30am at the pink gazebo.
