Fight Job Losses at London Met

I thought I had blogged enough today but was reminded in email correspondence of the very serious situation at London Metropolitan University, where hundreds of jobs are at risk. 37 MPs have signed EDM 575 calling on management to negotiate meaningfully with the trade unions but this plea seems to have been ignored.

UNISON and UCU have set up a joint campaign in opposition to these proposed job losses. UCU members are already being balloted for industrial action. UNISON members have also agreed to request a strike ballot.

I'll report further soon on how UNISON is supporting our local branch and our members to resist this attack.
