UCU Aberdeen reps meet Scotland’s First Minister

 

FirstministerphotoUnion reps from UCU’s Aberdeen branch were part of a group of trade union reps meeting with the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP in the Scottish Parliament on 30 March 2017.  UCU’s Mike McConnell and David Watts were representing the Aberdeen UCU branch committee which received  the STUC’s Organising Reps Award at STUC Congress in 2016.   The branch were nominated for the award due to the strong organising culture and structure which has been developed over the past few years, and has enabled the union branch to grow in strength, communication and organisation.  The Aberdeen branch has faced challenges with redundancies over the past couple of years, but its engaged membership and democratic organising ethos has helped in their fight back.
