Unions unite to save EMA – National day of action, 13 December

December 9, 2010


Students, staff and trade unions are uniting for a day of action as part of their campaign to save the education maintenance allowance (EMA). UCU has united with NUS, NUT, ATL, Unison, Unite and the GMB to call a national day of action on Monday 13 December. Colleges and sixth-forms around the country will be holding lunchtime protests against government plans to axe financial support that can often be the difference between some students being able to afford to continue their studies. A new joint website has also been launched with all the latest materials, which you can view here: http://www.emacampaign.org.uk/
**WHAT YOU CAN DO**:
*Please contact your branch to see what is being organised for the day and find out how you can help.
*Sign the petition: http://emacampaign.org.uk/sign. You can also download the petition and circulate it round your colleagues.
*Contact your local MP (www.writetothem.com) to ask them to sign the petition, attend and/or publicly support the day and the campaign
