As educators and trade unionists we condemn this attempt to demonise and divide human beings based on their nationality or religion
Many of you have contacted the union over the weekend to express outrage over President Trump’s executive order banning travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US.
As educators and trade unionists we condemn this attempt to demonise and divide human beings based on their nationality or religion and we stand with the thousands protesting in New York and across the world against Trump’s appalling policy.
However my primary concern this morning is that as staff working in what is an international sector many of you may be directly affected by this ban on travel. Please contact me if you are in this position so we can make urgent representations to the UK government on your behalf.
The petition calling for the withdrawal of the invitation to Donald Trump to come to the UK for a state visit has now reached over one million, including many UCU members. If you agree with the union you can sign it here.
