Endorsement from Professor Alan Bradshaw, Royal Holloway, University of London
I have known Jo Grady for years as a friend, colleague, and comrade. I have closely observed her union activity and have attended academic events she has organised and read her papers. I have discussed politics and strategy with her both formally and informally. She is strong, she is fearless, and she is committed. She knows how to organise and she knows how to win.
Our profession has changed so much these past few years and the pace of continuous change is exhausting. Last year’s strike bore witness to what UCU can be. We need a person who understands the new landscape of universities, trade unions, and politics. Jo Grady is that person. She knows how to electrify this trade union and when we win, it will be brilliant. I shall be voting for Jo Grady and I encourage you all to do the same.
