This year your union is celebrating May Day a bit later than usual: Friday 13th of May at the University Staff Club.
May Day brings an important occasion to show strength, togetherness and solidarity to our colleagues at the Arts Faculty. For over a century, workers all over the world have celebrated May Day as International Workers Day. The tradition started in 1890 when trade unions in many countries called for a protest at the beginning of May in furtherance of the campaign for an 8 hour working day. Over the years it has become a celebration, a time when workers can show union and solidarity by having fun.
UCU will be hosting its annual celebration for May Day on Friday 13th of May from 5.15 pm at Nottingham University Staff Club, The Hemsley. A flyer is abelow to share with colleagues. Reserve your tickets at firstname.lastname@example.org
This year we are bringing back Mas y Mas, a local Latin acoustic power trio playing irresistible Afro-Cuban, Flamenco and salsa rhythms. Fiesta Flamenco will bring their passionate, proud and exciting dance and our local Socialist Choir will ensure May Day keeps its spirits bright!
This will be a great opportunity to bring friends and family for a relaxing and enjoyable evening. Children are more than welcome and can come for free.
