    Good Luck Comrades.
    In Solidarity I salute your bravery and good sense.
    Stay solid and you will win.
    Enjoy your time on the picket line and play some funky music.
    Dancing pickets always weakens the resolve of management.
    Almost forgot, a cheque for £50 is winging it’s way from North Yorkshire

    50 quid donated wish could be more. This dispute has national significance & cannot be allowed to fail by UCU nationally.

    Manchester District of the Socialist Workers Party and friends send solidarity greetings. I’ve deposited £92 into your bank account. This was collected at a meeting to commemorate 30 years since the miners’ strike. After a good discussion, we collected £184, half of which has been sent to striking miners in South Africa.

    Keep going you are an inspiration.

    I am just posting a cheque for £103.00 collected at TUC LGBT Conference on 27th June 2014. Your brave struggle is an inspiration. Your struggle strengthens our struggle – we won’t stand by and allow our equality gains to be sold out to the business model of public services. Your challenge to privatisation is part of our collective struggle.
