Public Higher Education
I am taking part in industrial action because by asking us to do more for less our employers are ruining the experiences of our students and because I can see the unfairness of my employer employing the majority of men (52%) on permanent, full-time contracts, whilst the majority of women (56.4%) are in casualised employment. I will be standing shoulder to shoulder with colleagues and students in defence of higher education and to make it clear that casualisation and pay inequality are not acceptable.
We need dialogue between the police, security services and Muslim organisations to tackle threats and issues in local communities. This cannot happen if Muslim organisations feel targeted and are treated as being part of the problem instead of the solution.
