Fund the future

Starting tonight: Fund the Future programme of upcoming events

14 July 2020

Part of our Fund the Future campaign to protect jobs in post-16 education is an extensive programme of interactive online events for UCU members, branches and the general public.

Tonight at 6pm I am hosting a public event, 'Empower and Educate', with a range of special guests and UCU members about the sectors we work in and why we need them to lead the recovery from the coronavirus crisis. Please share and watch via Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or our campaign website.

There will be live music and a discussion of the great work our members in prison education do, featuring Billy Bragg, and panel guests including the journalist and UCU member Gary Younge; the economist Grace Blakeley; and Dave Ward, general secretary of the Communication Workers Union.

Hundreds of members watched our campaign launch live and I'd love to see as many of you there as possible tonight.

You can find out about our full programme of upcoming events and register your interest here.
