Kent UCU votes to ballot

Kent UCU votes to ballot


  • Today you passed a motion to launch an industrial action ballot over job security & other issues at Kent, with 98% voting in favour.


  • This was the highest ever proportional meeting turnout in the history of your branch.


  • Leading organisers from the strongest UCU branches in the country – Sussex and Liverpool – passionately endorsed your local strategy, pledging further support for your campaign. You also passed a motion in solidarity with Iranians.


  • Your elected committee are negotiating with senior management right now and they are immeasurably strengthened by your motion to ballot. Any potential industrial action would be subject to a further democratic vote by you and you can read our website for background on all of these issues.
