King’s College London pickets ruin royal visit

Issue No. 2412

UCU union members struck at King’s College London on Thursday of last week.

They are in dispute over bosses’ plans to cut jobs and divert money elsewhere.

Striker Anna Snaith told Socialist Worker, “They are prioritising capital investment over teaching.”

A planned visit by princess Anne to the college was cancelled due to the walkout.

UCU members have begun a work to rule and could strike again or begin a marking boycott if the dispute is not resolved.
