Attending hustings around the UK that branches have generously organised has been brilliant, even when the train wi-fi hasn’t been!
I am attending every single husting event for which I have received an invitation! Where at all possible I am travelling in person but am arranging to use Skype for the couple of occasions where I haven’t been able to arrange remote working. If there is a husting I’m not at/beaming over the interwebz to, it means I wasn’t invited!

Thank you to all the branches who have worked hard to invite all 3 candidates to these events, and who have been looking after we candidates so well! I hope we will be able to make UCU hustings more accessible to more members in the future (for example I would love to see a recorded “official UCU” national officers husting made available online to complement regional and branch hustings in future elections).
If you can’t make one of these dates but you want to ask a question, please let me know via:
