I wonder what people make of the Notes From Below post strike defeat suggestions for maintaining the 'fighting spirit ' and militant links forged during the strike here:
which seem to be endorsement of falling back on a traditional UCU rank and file democratisation agenda mixed in with a couple of unrelated dual union suggestions??

There are some explanations of how and why the poor deal was eventually accepted by the majority of the UCU members here;
but doesn't say much about organising for the future as such.

So this third 'after strike' set of comments seems more interesting in so far as there is maybe a potential basis for future action across the academic/non-academic and union divisions?
