#SaveStaffPensions - Defend Our Education
Workers in the UCU (University and College Union) at over 60 Universities across the country are on strike to resist savage cuts to their pensions. Sheffield Students’ Union stands in solidarity with UCU. Staff are not to blame for the disruption: they deserve a secure future, and so does our education.
We’re running a campaign to #SaveStaffPensions, encouraging students to show solidarity with striking workers, and demanding that our Vice-Chancellor Sir Keith Burnett speaks out in defence of staff pensions. We’re also calling for students and staff to have a democratic say over the use of savings deducted from striking workers’ pay.
