Industrial Action – 30th November 2011

Tomorrow’s Day of Action promises to be a great success. It has strong public support and the government is already back-pedalling on its threats.

We’d like to thank all of you that have volunteered to picket tomorrow at the open JMU buildings and are coming to the march and rally.

For those of you coming on the march JMU members are meeting at 11.40 outside Debenhams, Lord St to walk down together to the Pier Head. You can also join us at the Pier Head at 12 o’clock where we will be assembling in Section D, near to the Liver Building. The rally is from 1 o’clock at St George’s plateau.

Tomorrow we need all of you – School Directors, Managers, Lecturers and Researchers – to support your fellow members and workers at JMU and all those in the public sector who do so much for us and our families.

Some of you have told local reps that you would like to take action but cannot afford to do so and therefore will be turning into work.
To you I would say two things:
1) Under the government’s proposals a senior lecturer will be paying £1,400 per year extra in contributions. Will you be able to afford this?
2) By coming into work you are doing what Cameron, Alexander and Gove have asked you to do and, in effect, are supporting the coalition government and its proposals.

Support the Day of Action! Don’t cross picket lines!
Don’t be on the losing side tomorrow!
