UCU members from Bradford College joined NUT and NASUWT members to protest against cuts, changes to conditions and the attack on our pensions. The Sheffield march was arranged to target the constituency of Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, with a similar protest taking place in Prime Minister David Cameron’s Oxfordshire base. After a lively march through Sheffield City centre, a rally outside the Town Hall at lunchtime was addressed by NUT General Secretary Christine Blower and other speakers from leading public sector unions including UCU. Speakers spoke of the need to build for action, including strike action in the autumn.
