Unison union rep Max Watson to appeal forced redundancy

Issue No. 2468

Union rep Max Watson will appeal against his compulsory redundancy on Thursday of this week. 

Max is branch secretary of the Unison union at London Metropolitan University. 

He is the only worker in his faculty facing compulsory redundancy.

The union believes bosses are deliberately targeting Max because he has led a series of struggles against cuts.

His supporters plan to protest on the day.

Defend Max Watson—Support Trade Union Activists: Thursday 27 August,  12 noon to 2pm, outside the Rocket Complex, London Metropolitan University,  166-220 Holloway Road, London N7 8DB.
