Strike action in higher education

2020 environment conference

UCU Congress 2019 resolved that trade unions must help a just transition.

The conference is intended to pull together policy set at UCU Congress 2019. A number of climate and sustainability motions were passed which sought progress on a number of key areas including divestment; development of climate related teaching materials and curriculum; develop a campaign and resources to achieve as many progressive climate related changes as possible and to support the youth strike movement.

The date and precise programme is in development at this current time but the aim will be to launch a model 'New Green Deal' claim with accompanying advice and guidance to branches.
