Come to this vital branch meeting 12-1, 24 June in Lister Lecture Theatre and other news

This week, some of the Defend Education Action Group attended the “End Austerity Now” demonstration that attracted as many as 250,000 marchers. It was a massive strength of feeling that brought people from all parts of the country, young and old, people with disabilities, health and care professionals and users as well as from education and trade unions. All who know the detrimental effects ‘austerity’ is having on public services and on our communities. This is not the time for our employers to use austerity as an excuse but the time to defend what we do, defend education and jobs so that the people of Bradford can have the opportunities they need and deserve in this ever-changing world.

Here’s the good article that we posted before focusing on the neglect of Further Education from governments: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jun/18/further-education-lifeline-colleges-skills-cut?CMP=share_btn_link

Here are some follow-up letters that some people may find interesting: http://www.theguardian.com/education/2015/jun/22/further-education-colleges-lifeline-britain-young-adults?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Facebook

We also continued to have a presence over Saturday lunch time in Bradford city centre, despite the rain! Again we thank staff particularly from BR who made the effort. Perhaps people from other departments can join us next weekend?

What else can you do?
