Strike Action Meeting + NUS Support

A reminder that there is an invite in your Outlook Calendars for today’s Branch Meeting at 13:15 in 3E 2.1 where we will be discussing strike action.

For those who missed it at the time, please see the joint UCU/NUS statement of mutual support on the current HE dispute HERE, and yesterday’s tweet by NUS president Zamzam Ibrahim in solidarity HERE. I have contacted the President Bath SU today and hope that we can work together as sister unions to help avoid confusion and anxiety amongst students by offering a clear message on the dispute and the nature of the planned action, volunteering to hold a joint meeting to answer questions from the student body, etc.

Film Showing Next Week

A quick reminder that next week, UCU Bath will be hosting director Jon Seal for a showing of his new documentary The Teacher’s Protest, which chronicles the 1942 teacher’s strike in Nazi occupied Norway. It would be fantastic to get a strong showing for what is an excellent and timely documentary about a little known topic. The showing is 18:15 on Thursday the 14th of November. Those wishing to attend, please book through the Eventbrite page HERE so we know if there’s a need to alter the room.

Unis Resist Borders Workshop

An update also on the planned Uni’s Resist Border Controls: Resistant Workshop, which is set for Wednesday 27th of November. If it is not possible to reach an agreement in time for strike action to be called off, the event will still take place, but will be moved to a city centre location. Please do also book on the Eventbrite page HERE to indicate you will be attending.
