Bradford College UCU members join NUT and NASUWT members in Sheffield

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.

  1. I was at the demonstration on Saturday in Sheffield too. It was great to be with a lot of other people trying to defend public services, in particular education.It was inspiring to see about 1,000 trade unionists from all over the North uniting to fight back against austerity. I used to belong to Bradford ACE branch and am now secretary of the UCU Yorkshire and Humberside Retired Members branch. Retired members are very angry about the damage to the services they used to contribute to and about attempts to damage conditions of service of those currently doing the job. Resistance is healthy!
