Protect the right to strike – stop the Trade Union Bill

You may have heard that the Trade Union Bill was considered in Parliament yesterday. It is only the beginning of the legislative process but the current proposal threatens to introduce new ballot thresholds, restrict picketing and attack our ability to give people a voice at work.

UCU is working with the TUC to campaign against the Trade Union Bill. Please help us defend trade union rights by:
• raising the issue with your local MP (nearly 300 of you have already used our simple online tool)
• attending the TUC protest outside the Conservative party conference in Manchester on 4 October (see more below)
• lobbying Westminster MPs on 2 November, email to register.
