Email message sent to the UCU General Secretary in response to a request from her for ideas how to ‘Improve support and representation for members and local reps’, and ‘Encourage members to get more involved in our union’.
Dear Ms Hunt,
I find it hard to reconcile the laudable words of your message below with the actions of our Union in embracing as policy that which the European Union defines as anti-Semitism. This is not Germany of the 1930’s. I am simply ashamed to be a member of such an organization. How can anyone take this union seriously? I am sure I am not the only member considering whether I can, in good-conscience, remain associated with this union.
With great sadness
