Workers Party members joined striking trade unionists from the Communications Workers Union and the University & College Union on picket lines across Belfast this morning in support of their just demands for above inflation pay awards, job security, improved conditions and pension rights.
Workers at almost sixty colleges and universities throughout Northern Ireland have taken industrial action in recent days in opposition to pension cuts, pay and worsening working conditions.
The Workers Party has sent the following message of support to the University and Colleges Union
Workers Party stands with University staff and supports their just demands
The Workers Party supports the industrial action taken by UCU members over pensions, pay and working conditions. Low pay, casualisation, excessive workloads and inequality of pay are serious threats to workers and to the education system itself.
The Workers Party stands with the dedicated staff and their supporters in their just demands.
