“Not much happening in there today.” That was the word from Northumberland College as UCU members took part in the national strike on pay. Northumberland College members were well represented at the Rally, and John McCormack gave a rousing speech to striking public sector workers. “Give us the money Gordon Brown”, was the general message. The Branch has been succesful in getting publicity before the strike, and the press also came down to their picket lines.
