Lecturers and students at Salford University are fighting plans by management to push through 150 job cuts.
It hopes to save £13 million over three years and says money is needed to pay for new buildings.
Yet it has emerged that the university has spent a massive £66,600 on refitting facilities and offices for senior staff.
Workers and students have set up a campaign against the cuts, called Salford University Defend Education (SUDE). Contact [email protected] for more information.
Meanwhile there is a growing campaign to reverse the suspension of a lecturer at the university’s business school.
The university brought in new disciplinary procedures last November, which allow senior managers to order suspensions.
Previously, only the vice-chancellor was able to suspend academics.
