Tomorrow’s International Women’s Day charity fundraising event, showing “On the Basis of Sex”, organised with Unite and Hallam Students Union has been cancelled at the request of Hallam Branch of the UCU as it coincides with one of their strike days.
I apologise for the short notice. The event was organised before the strike was called, so when the strike days were confirmed I contacted UCU Hallam Branch Officers for advice. They had wanted us to go ahead and were planning to come along and speak before the film showing with representatives of the other two unions. However, that decision was overturned by a UCU Branch meeting this lunchtime.
I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused by this late cancellation. The aim of the event was to raise money for the Snowdrop Project and I don’t want them to lose out. I’ve therefore set up a fundraising account and hope that you’ll make a donation to help their work supporting trafficked women. Please give here.
