UCU wins right to strike for migrant workers

Sep 18th, 2018 | By | Category: News

After months of campaigning by UCU, including most recently the threat of legal action, the home secretary, Sajid Javid, announced that he will be changing the immigration rules to ensure that migrant workers will now be able to play a full part in legal strike action without fearing the impact on their immigration status.

This is a big win for all trade unionists, not just those in UCU and it has come about as a direct result of our campaigning work. Thanks to everyone who wrote to MPs and in particular to members from overseas who took strike action despite these concerns.
