Leading trade unionists sacked as London Met plans 395 job cuts

Anger is escalating over management’s decision to make David Hardman and Mark Campbell,  the UCU branch secretary and branch chair, compulsorily redundant – the only two redundancies to be made, and with plans afoot to cut a staggering 395 jobs in September. With a vice-chancellor one of the few in favour of the Government’s white paper on higher education, and a governing board chair who was UK managing director of notorious education privateers Pearsons, it’s clear that London Met is being softened up for privatisation. National demonstration to reinstate Mark and David: Sat July 23, 11:30am, London Met Holloway Road site to Highbury Fields.
