Jeremy Corbyn joins UCU rally at King's Cross Station

UCU rally
The rally, held at King's Cross Station, saw thousands rallying in support of UCU, NEU and higher education strikes.

Alongside Dr Jo Grady and a host of other trade union general secretaries, including RMT's Mick Lynch and CWU's Dave Ward, Jeremy Corbyn addressed the rally of thousands of UCU members and supporters, calling for a fully-funded education system and fair pay for all workers.

UCU members in higher education have worked throughout the pandemic and generated record income for the sector and have faced attacks on their pay, conditions, and pensions.
