The Unions21 Podcast

UCU General Secretary-elect Dr Jo Grady

May 24, 2019

In this Unions21 podcast special, Becky and Simon chat with the UCU’s General Secretary-elect, Dr Jo Grady.  What makes the next incumbent of one of education’s top jobs get out of bed in the morning? Was she really, literally, born into the labour movement?  And what is her vision for the union she will now lead?  Jo also discusses her widely-admired research work on how a transaction-based approach has permeated almost every area of life – and the threat/challenge this poses to working people and their unions.  This episode was held in purdah during the UCU election but can now be set free!
