Over the years we gave hundreds of T-shirts to our volunteers as a thank you for helping. If you still have a Unity Day T-shirt please take a snap and share with us. We want to see how far our Unity Day spitit has spread :-) ... See more

This Friday we will be raising money for the hardship fund for the University Strikers, dinner, comedy and live music in the name of a good cause https://www.facebook.com/events/124205881753827/?active_tab=about ... See more
Rainbow Junktion Community Cafe will be hosting a solidarity dinner, raising funds for the striking higher education staff on Friday 6th April 2018 from 19:00 - 22:30. There will be stand-up from renowned comic performers Rosie Dent Spargo and Bobbie Jones, and the Leeds UCU brand will be talking briefly about the cause.
The event is pay-as-you-feel with a compulsory £2 seat booking fee. The suggested donation is £15* for 1) the 3 course meal, 2) entertainment, 3) live music on the night and 4) to help reimburse striker hardship fund.
Proposed cuts to lecturers pensions could amount to a loss of £10,000 per year. Younger staff and those on casualized zero-hour style contracts are going to be particularly affected. For some, every day of striking costs a day's pay. There are hardships funds in place to mitigate this loss, but since it is one of the longest HE stikes on record these funds are over stretched.
The chefs at Rainbow Junktion will prepare a delious 3-course meal from the surplus food that supermarkets unnecessarily dump (there will be vegan options available). The meal will be accomapnied by some live music, stand up and a UCU speaker. Dessert will be served before 21:00, so if you need to dash off don't worry, but you can also stick around to enjoy the comic acts. There will be a bar to buy alcohol (beer, red & white wine; from which the profits will also go towards the hardship fund), and/ or BYOB.
Please email if you have any dietry requirments including if you are vegan. This is to help mitigate waste!
***UPDATE*** The fabulous @[637035045:2048:Rowan Voirrey] from Crake https://crake.bandcamp.com/releases will be playing a live acoustic set.
*£15 this is a suggested donation only and if you cannot afford this full price then please still come and donate what you can. ... See more
