Strike update 5.3.2020

Multistorey picket line 5.3.2020

Solid support on the picket lines and chatting with staff and students explaining about the reasons behind our action.

We had several organising meetings in Wivenhoe. Thanks to all the venues that are hosting us. There have been student teach-outs and banner making sessions too.

There will be a Feminist Picket Line at EBS on Mon 9 March to mark International Women’s Day which this year falls on Sunday 8 March.

There is also going to be a picket line to raise the issues around casualisation (watch this space either Wed 11 or Thurs 12 March)
