City Lit workers plan to rally against jobs slasher

Issue No. 2409

Workers at London’s City Lit college have called a rally against job cuts.

Bosses have announced plans to slash 73 jobs. A joint UCU and GMB union meeting unanimously passed a vote of no confidence in the college’s chief executive earlier this month.

Workers were set to rally against the job cuts from 12.30pm until 2pm on Wednesday of this week outside the college.

Students are also getting involved in the campaign and were holding a planning meeting this week.

UCU union members at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, north Wales, have voted overwhelmingly for strikes to save jobs.

Some 84 percent backed strikes on a turnout of 57 percent in a ballot.

Bosses want to cut up to 60 jobs.


A ballot of UCU members at King’s College London was due to end on Wednesday of this week. 

Workers are voting on whether to strike over planned job cuts.
