I’m writing to ask you to add your name today to the joint unions' petition in defence of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme. Sign now here: http://www.ucu.org.uk/tpspetition
On 26 October, members of UCU will join members of NUT, ATL, NASUWT, NAHT, ASCL and UCAC in a mass lobby of Parliament.
Thousands of teachers and lecturers will be in London taking a message to politicians of all parties from a united education profession: we will not be forced to work longer, pay more and get less to satisfy the government’s deficit reduction programme.
The petition will be printed and handed in to the government on the day of the lobby, along with petitions from schools all over the UK.
Please help us to make this petition as big as possible. Sign it and forward this email to all your colleagues: http://www.ucu.org.uk/tpspetition.
Thank you for taking the time to read this email,
UCU General Secretary
