Where has the support for the UCU come from?
An anonymous motion was posted on The SU’s ‘Make a Change’ platform. The statement posted was “The SU to show support in favour of the UCU strikes”. This quickly hit the threshold of 25 upvotes and was taken to student council for discussion and debate. The vote resulted in eight members of council voting for the SU to support strikes, one member voting no, and two abstaining the vote.
