Over 100 lecturers, students and supporters held a lobby on Wednesday of last week outside London Met university. Lecturers are facing union derecognition and redundancies.

Amanda Sackur, chair of London Met UCU union, said “We have to fight. If this is about falling student numbers, why are they advertising jobs at the same time as announcing these redundancies?”

UCU general secretary Sally Hunt sent a message of support to the lobby saying, “London Met stands alone in the post-16 education sector in its attempts to derecognise the legitimate voice of academic staff.

“We cannot, and will not, let this happen.”
