On 4 May, the local branch approved a hardship fund to support colleagues who incur a salary deduction for participating in the MAB. This is 50% of the usual strike day fund, i.e. £25 per day for staff on over £30k and £37.50 per day for those earning below £30k. Check emails for details of the motion and instructions on how to make a claim.
Please write to colleagues in your School/Department asking them to donate to the hardship fund so that we can minimise the financial impact upon colleagues participating in the MAB and help those who are struggling. A personal appeal from you is much more effective than a blanket email from the local branch. Our bank details for donations can be found in the email.
