Hi, I’m Catherine Fletcher, I’m Associate Professor in History at Swansea University and I’m supporting Jo Grady for UCU General Secretary. I’m supporting her because I was really impressed by what Jo and what the colleagues at USSbriefs did last year during the pensions strike. They were getting information out and drawing on the expertise of members to make sure that we knew what was happening with our pensions, when we weren’t getting that information necessarily from elsewhere. I think that is a model for how UCU ought to operate and that’s why I’m really happy to be backing Jo.
