Strong show on the picket at the Blenheim Walk site of Leeds College of Art today. The Leeds College of Art UCU branch was to participate in the third national UCU 2 hour strike but as management insists on docking a whole day's pay for a 2 hour strike, the branch voted to strike for a whole day today.
Towards the end of the two hour strike, both the Leeds Met and Leeds Uni UCU branches came to join our picket and to hand a letter to the college principal in protest against the docking of a full day's pay for 2 hours strikes. A fantastic show of solidarity. Many thanks to everyone who came over to join us.
