#Ruskin College Teachers and Students in #UCU Sympathy Action


UCU members took part in a 2 hour strike today in their continuing fight on pay.  At Ruskin College where I study, the teachers are members of UCU but not part of the dispute.  However, teachers and students downed tools in sympathy and solidarity with their comrades across the union.  As a student I was pleased to support this action which the Student’s Union formally pledged to support at a meeting last night.  Everyone involved with Ruskin should be proud of the radical history of the college and the action today shows it has a chance to claim a radical future.

Below are some pictures from earlier today showing teaching staff and the students meeting to discuss the action.
