Support protests against tripling of student fees

From Bob Crow, General Secretary

The ConDem Government will next week vote on the proposed three-fold increases in student fees, a move that is grossly unfair and potentially affects every family in the country, including those of RMT members.

On Wednesday December 8, joint University and College Union and National Union of Students rallies and demonstrations will be taking place around the country in opposition to the increase.
For details about rallies in your area please contact Justine Stephens at

On Thursday December 9, the day of the vote, there will be a joint UCU/NUS mass lobby of parliament.
The time of the lobby is still being finalised and will be appear on the UCU website at

Please do your best to attend the protests next week.

Best wishes

Bob Crow,
RMT General Secretary
