The campaign to stop an estimated 200 redundancies at the University of the Arts in London took a major step forward last week.

Around 200 lecturers and supporters packed into a meeting to discuss how to fight a rolling programme of job cuts and course closures, which at the moment is mainly hitting the London College of Communication.

The meeting unanimously passed a motion opposing compulsory redundancies, course closures and any reduction in redundancy terms for lecturers.

It also voted to ballot for strike action if management don’t call a halt to their “efficiency” cuts.

UCU union reps at the meeting argued that the attacks were the start of a wider series of deep cuts across the five other colleges which make up the university.
