Why we, as students, should support strike action

by occupyliverpooluniversity

Today and tomorrow both libraries will close as staff at our university take strike action.

A strike is never the first course of action. It is an absolute last resort.

As students, we need to support the people who constitute the campus community; because they are the university.

When we leave University, the majority of us will also face attacks on our employment conditions from our managers.

Supporting workers here now means we support our own right to fair employment.

Our education is not University management’s priorty:

University of Liverpool Deputy Vice Chancellor: ‘Education is part of the university’s business’

Support university staff who actively support your education.

Pay cuts are the action, strikes are the reaction.

Strikes are visible, pay cuts aren’t.

Meeting at 12pm on University Square to show our support for those striking.
