clear ballot result from Essex branch in favour of industrial action (22 Jan 2018)

email from Dr  Cathy Crawford, President of Essex UCU branch (22nd Jan 2018):

Dear Essex UCU members

We at Essex voted 91% in favour of strike action, and 93% in favour of action short of a strike.

Thanks for voting!  And thanks especially to the reps and others who helped achieve our splendid turnout (61.5% of Essex members voted, above national average).

Let us hope this overwhelmingly clear UCU mandate will make the employers more constructive than they have been so far!

Formal negotations start tomorrow.​

Dr Catherine Crawford· Senior Lecturer in History· President Essex UCU
