How do we successfully practice ethical leadership in times of austerity? Very important that unions lead the way. “We have to say not I am a feminist BUT. We have to say I am a feminist AND...”

GARA | DAY 132 IN OCCUPATION Jul 19
1/18 Please retweet this thread! On July 16th SMT threatened us with eviction from Deptford Town Hall if we don't leave by 8am on Monday. Last time this happened, they put DTH in lockdown, and BME students inside were assaulted by externally hired security guards.

Report from that reminds us of the importance of FE. A multi national analysis of Technical & Vocational Education & Training (TVET) as a framework for social justice. Key findings from England case study...?That inadequate funding is the main drawback!

Key lesson from the FE & HE caucus is that the around the world casualisation of labour in our workplaces is undermining education. This is evident in key issues we face, from collective bargaining, academic freedom, staff voice, & defending the profession.

Rob rightly highlights that in an era of performance based funding, tyranny of metrics, poor governance, & rampant casualisation, concerns about academic freedom have increased. This is why submitted an allegation to this year regarding this:

We are at 8th . Rob Copeland Policy Officer updates international colleagues about concerns in Europe; these include consequences for staff of funding & financing, & threats to academic freedom by increase in political authoritarianism & marketisation.

Staff say the college "lacks a moral compass", has "lost its sense of responsibility to students” & that college managers "should hang their heads in shame for forcing loyal staff to sign new contracts through intimidation"

Last time I checked it was structural inequality, undervaluing of ‘women’s work’, conception of skill, & gender based stereotypes that were central to the gender pay gap, not exposed clavicle flesh & a hint a décolletage. But thanks for having our backs, Andrew.

The union is a collective experience for our struggles, not a fee for a service. Unions are ultimately about helping workers recognise their own power & win! Bringing ppl together to organise, oppose, resist, and fight back. This is how we push back on issues like the one raised.

In 1834, six men were imprisoned for the 'crime' of forming a trade union. This is the story of the Tolpuddle Martyrs.

Sadly not. I’m actually on a flight right now, but tweeting due to the magic of plane WiFi! Have fun, comrade.
