Reinstate David Muritu

UCU petition calling on Sandwell College to immediately reinstate David Muritu, branch secretary and experienced trade union rep, who has been sacked for gross misconduct after he drew on a poster promoting the controversial Prevent programme. David apologised for his actions and we believe the heavy-handed, disproportionate response from the college is due to David's trade union activities. We will not stand by as trade union representatives are victimised.

Reinstate Lee Humber

Management at Ruskin College have attacked the UCU branch at the college, suspending membership secretary Lee Humber following a vote of no confidence in the Ruskin College Principal Paul Di Felice.

Save Stourbridge College

Birmingham Metropolitan College plan to close Stourbridge College by 1 August 2019. The town can't afford to lose its college - once it's gone, it's gone. We're calling on the community to come together and join our campaign to save Stourbridge College.

Save science at University of Portsmouth

The future of science at Portsmouth is currently under threat and the university plans to make academic staff in that faculty redundant. The decision to cut experienced staff will also hit students and risk damaging the university's reputation. If you believe that science is worth saving, please sign our petition and help stop these unnecessary job cuts at University of Portsmouth.
