Around 60 people rallied at London Metropolitan University on Wednesday of last week in defence of Mark Campbell and David Hardman.

The UCU union branch officers lost appeals against their compulsory redundancies earlier this month.

London Met UCU said they had been targeted because of their “activities as trade unionists”. UCU members at London Met were set to meet on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

They should call for a strike ballot to defend their reps and the right to organise.

National pay campaign

UCU union members at several universities struck last week as part of the continuing dispute over pay and conditions.

Workers walked out at Roehampton university on Wednesday and at Canterbury Christ Church university on Thursday. Strikes hit the University of Teesside and Swansea university on Friday.

Strikers want equal pay for women and an end to casualised contracts.

They have also rejected a paltry 1.1 percent pay offer from bosses.
