Today is the first day of the marking boycott, an action supported by our members in Kingston UCU in a final vote last Friday 20 May. Solidarity to everyone at Kingston and its sister unions throughout the country who are taking part!
We blew past our original target of £1000 pounds a mere 24 hours after launching the appeal, and offer a mighty thanks to everyone who have pitched in so far! We’ve had donations and messages of solidarity from the Kingston community and beyond.
We have 46 days more to go in the Top Up the Fund appeal, and are hoping to raise much more to support our members who are starting to take action today.
All the more so as we learn that Kingston management have joined the leader board of the PEF – the Punitive Employer Framework (let’s make this a thing!!) – by being one of the top 10 employers threatening to deduct 100% pay from workers taking this legal action!
Please help us to fight back and to mark the first day of the boycott by sharing the appeal on your networks.
Are you a Kingston UCU member and not able to participate in the marking boycott? Then why not commit to sharing a part of your wages to help support those who are? You can set up a regular monthly donation with your next donation!
Solidarity and strength to those starting the boycott action today!
