As a co-defender of education and in order to protect the interests of our membership, Sussex Students’ Union stands in solidarity with UCU and staff striking for a just and fair education system.
The Students’ Union recognises the seriousness of the situation and is committed to supporting the aims of the strike in protecting staff pensions and tackling disability, race and gender pay gaps. While recognising the seriousness of the situation, the Students' Union also recognises the cause of it: The increased profiteering of our education. We are students, not customers.
The Students’ Union also commits to working towards mitigating the implications and effects on students’ education, access and welfare in this time, including lobbying for the students’ fair reimbursement, whilst acknowledging the University of Sussex’s legal obligation to protect students’ interests as set out in the Office for Students regulatory framework.
