Join a picket – 2019 edition

Would you like to join a picket line on a strike day, to show Royal Holloway’s management just how strongly their staff feel about protecting their pensions, improving our members’ working conditions and combatting inequality? Then sign up to come and join us! Our pickets run from 8am to 10.15am at Egham and 11.45am to 2pm at Bedford Square on strike days.

If you’re a novice picketer and want to find out more about what’s involved, we wrote an introduction to picketing during last year’s strikes for you.

Sign up to picket on the main Egham campus – please meet the picket supervisor at the Founders building. They will provide you with an official picketing armband and direct you to one of the agreed picketing locations.

Sign up to picket at the Bedford Square building.

Once you’ve signed up, there won’t be any confirmation e-mail – please just turn up. You can also turn up without signing up first – we’ll be delighted to see you.

Please note: check the weather forecast before you picket! Please make sure you wrap up as warm as you need to for standing still for two hours. If we get another cold snap then gloves, scarves, hats, hot water bottles and similar are all highly recommended.

Will you be picketing more than once? Then please bring back your picket armband for your next session – we’ve had so many picketers that we’re risking running out of them!
