19 November 2016: United for education
We have joined up with our sister union the National Union of Students (NUS) for a mass demonstration in defence of free, accessible and quality further and higher education and to demand an end to privatisation and cuts in universities and colleges. Staff, students and supporters from across the education sector and trade union movement will march in London in what promises to be a huge show of opposition to government policy on post-school education.
Help us make the national demo on 19 November the biggest ever!

We have just given formal notice to members today of the University of York branch’s Annual General Meeting, to be held on 5th November 2015 at 1 pm, in the lecture theatre in the Biology Department (B/B/009) over on Heslington West.
We’d love to see as many members there as possible, and there will also be an exciting chance to hear a key UCU member of staff speak just prior to the AGM – details for this are still being finalised but we can guarantee that it will be a person of some importance within the union – and you are going to want to hear what they have to say! Watch this space.
We have managed to secure the services of Michael MacNeil, National Head of Bargaining and Negotiations at UCU, to come and speak at a Branch Meeting to be held next Tuesday, 11th November, at 12 pm – we hope to see as many of you there as possible.
