Manchester Metropolitan University ban on-site union meetings

Issue No. 2188

Bosses at Manchester Metropolitan University have launched an outrageous assault on workers’ rights to organise in trade unions.

Management last week banned the Unison union from holding on-site meetings with its members. Management is threatening to impose 127 compulsory redundancies.

Unison was to hold a protest on Wednesday of this week. Unison members will also vote next week on whether to ballot for industrial action.

Join the protest, 12.15pm, Wednesday 10 February, All Saints Park, Oxford Rd
