Dear UCU London Met
The educational services you provide are of national importance.
we wish you every success in your fight against job cuts and onerous teaching loads for the remaining staff.
Dr. Andy Higginbottom, Associate Professor, UCU Branch Chair, Kingston University
To all members of London Met UCU
Solidarity and Good Luck to you all on your strike this Thursday 29 September against mass redundancies and the victimisation of UCU reps Mark Campbell and David Hardman. Fight the sackings! Defend Higher Education!
From Newcastle University UCU
Hi all at London Met UCU
Solidarity in tomorrow’s strike action from Halesowen UCU here in the Midlands. The attack on staff, provision and representation at London Met goes hand in hand with the ongoing butchering of FE college provision and the attempted return to grammar schools – it is all about shutting working class people and other oppressed groups out of education.
Your fight is our fight. Good luck tomorrow
Rhiannon Lockley, Halesowen branch secretary and West Midlands chair, UCU
HI, I am afraid I will be in work by 8am tomorrow so won’t be able to come to your picket line, but please see our message of solidarity. BW Jackie Applebee, Hon Sec, Tower Hamlets BMA Division.
“Tower Hamlets BMA stand with London Met UCU in their principled stand against mass redundancies and the victimisation of UCU reps Mark Campbell and David Hardman.
This Government are determined to undermine essential public services and deny ordinary people the right to a good education, good healthcare and good housing. We are disappointed that the junior doctors struggle did not generalise more widely and salute you for continuing your fight. ”
Dear UCU London Met,
I am sending a message of solidarity to your union branch as you strike to defend jobs, union reps and higher education. You are sending a clear message that you are willing to fight against the victimisation of union reps and in defence of education for all and you have the full support of members in our branch. Solidarity!
Matthew Cookson, Branch secretary of UCU Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College
Good luck with your strike tomorrow.
Its a disgrace the way LMU has behaved over several years towards its staff and students.
You are absolutely right to fight back.
