I support Jo Grady’s campaign to become General Secretary of our trade union, UCU, because she gives me hope. She gives me hope that we can finally begin to fight back more effectively against the negative impacts that the marketisation of education has had on UK universities: on staff workloads, on our work culture and on the quality of our students’ education.

Jo Grady is deeply committed to understanding and listening to the lived experiences of UCU members and giving them a voice in the governance of our union. With Jo Grady at the helm, positive change is possible.
