UCU Congress 2015: #HandsOffLondonMet

20150524_133233 UCU National Congress – held in Glasgow this weekend, unanimously passed the following #handsofflondonmet motion and then collectively stood in solidarity (photo above):

Congress wishes to express its full support and solidarity with colleagues resisting job and service cuts at London Metropolitan University. We congratulate them on a successful day of strike action on Thursday May 21, and pledge to stand with them in any future action they deem necessary to win their dispute. Congress believe this is not simply a fight to defend jobs – as important as that is, but rather a fight to defend an essential university whose mission and practice of widening participation and access to BME students, women returners, and working class students from its local communities is second to none.
