Cuts Watch#329: Save EMA Day

06 Dec 2010, by in Cuts Watch

On 13 December the National Union of Students and trade unions ATL, GMB, NUT, UCU, UNISON and Unite are holding a nationwide day of lunchtime protests at colleges to demand that the government abandons its plans to scrap Educational Maintenance Allowances. They have set up an EMA Campaign website, with a petition and useful facts and arguments. Protestors will be contacting their local MP to make the case for keeping the EMA and unions will ask them to join the demonstrations on the 13th.
