Motion in Solidarity with Liverpool UCU Strike in defence of health researchers and lecturers

Proposed Motion:

This branch/executive notes:

  • That Liverpool UCU branch has now started three weeks of strike action in response to the unacceptable decision by the University to make redundant 32 staff members in the Health & Life Sciences Faculty
  • That sacking health researchers and lecturers during a pandemic is particularly outrageous
  • That this is a crucial struggle for all UCU branches as employers up and down the country seek to target staff and programmes for further cuts

This branch/exec resolves:

  • to send a message of support to Liverpool UCU
  • to invite a member of the branch to the next Executive or general meeting
  • to donate £500 to their strike fund
