Issue No. 2447

UCU union members at Greenwich College in south east London struck on Friday of last week in a row over contracts.

Bosses want to impose new contracts that would increase the working week, cut holidays and introduce unannounced observations.

The strike was solid with a large picket line all day. Workers received solidarity from local NUT, GMB and Unison union members.

Two more strike days are planned in the first week back after the holidays.
