Engage readers who are also UCU members should have received their voting papers for the NEC elections. In the past those promoting the boycott of Israel, or opposing recognized definitions of antisemitism, have tended to be associated with UCU Left.
In general – although individual views on these issues do of course vary – the ‘independent broad left’ (IBL) is perhaps more likely to be in tune with Engage readers’ own priorities, more pragmatic and more focused on such key issues as pay, pensions, marketization, and casualisation.
UCU members should read all the election statements, but this is the list of IBL candidates by post/region.
