UCU becomes sixth union to back Jarrow march
At its conference, the University and College Union has overwhelmingly agreed to support the Jarrow March for Jobs taking place in the autumn.
This is the sixth national union to back the march, joining the FBU (firefighters), RMT and TSSA (transport unions), PCS (civil servants) and Bectu (media and entertainment).
Youth Fight for Jobs, the campaign organising the march, is very grateful for all trade union support and donations towards the cost of what is a big undertaking.
"We won't be a lost generation, Fight for jobs and education!" says the campaign.
