Defend Max Watson against compulsory redundancy

Issue No. 2466

Max Watson, Unison union branch secretary at London Metropolitan University, will be making his appeal against compulsory redundancy on 27 August.

His supporters will join a protest in solidarity on the day.

Max is the only member of staff in his faculty and one of only three Unison members facing compulsory redundancy among non-academic staff across the university.

Unison believes university bosses are using this round of redundancies to deliberately target Max because he is a thorn in their side.

Last month Unison members held a solid walkout against the victimisation—their third strike this year.
