The Friday email: 1 May 2020

May Day greetings to all our members and supporters. This year the TUC are inviting union members to #ThankAWorker who has made a difference to you and you can find out how to take part here. Many people will also be wearing red to celebrate key workers and posting solidarity photos tagged with #redforkeyworkers.

Remember the dead, fight for the living

This week we also marked International Workers' Memorial Day with a minute's silence to remember all those workers lost to the coronavirus. See our short video here marking the day and talking about what UCU members are doing to help beat Covid-19.

Coronavirus and organising during lockdown

Our general secretary Jo Grady held two national organising video calls this week with over two hundred local branch reps joining discussion on the union's response to the pandemic crisis.

There is a dedicated web area here with guidance and information on coronavirus for UCU members.

Political fund: right to give a withdrawal notice

A notice to members in Great Britain who joined the union on or after 1 March 2018 is issued today in respect of the union's political fund. More information about the political fund can found here.
