Abstract

In 2013 a Pop-Up Union was formed by grassroots members of the three campus trade unions (Unison, Unite and UCU) with support from students in the Occupy Sussex movement, to try and stop the outsourcing of 235 campus jobs including porters, cleaners, security and catering.[i] The creation of this first (and to date only) single issue trade union formed to fight for workers’ rights, can be seen as a legal milestone in UK trade unionism.
