- Throughout the duration of the MAB we will be holding daily drop-in surgeries on Teams from 9:30am-10:30am for advice and support. In addition, we will be organising semi-regul in-person meetings to build solidarity and ensure that everyone feels supported.
- Warwick UCU Solidarity Fund will be available for GTAs as well as other UCU members facing hardship because of any possible pay deductions due to their participation in the MAB. The Solidarity Fund webpage will be updated regularly.
- It is vital that we ensure that our colleagues do not take on marking originally allocated to a UCU member participating in the MAB. We encourage you to email (or speak in person with) non-union colleagues, asking them not to undermine our MAB, using this template letter.
- Warwick SU continues to stand with Warwick UCU in its fight for better pay and working conditions. We recognise that student graduation may be disrupted if employers refuse to improve their offer to UCU. We encourage you and your colleagues to use the following template letter for communicating with students.
