    Dear UCU union colleagues.

    As a member of Unite and a retired member of staff at the University of Essex, I sincerely wish you all, good luck and every success with your industrial action.

    I am sure that you are all struggling with your consciences about taking this action, as you have the best interests of your students at heart, but you have been forced into this situation by the intrangients of your employers.

    Please stay firm, as if you concede this time, all future academia will suffer and institutions will not be able to attract the highest calibre staff, for future generations.

    Kindest regards to each and every one of you.

    Roy Rodd.
