Workers at London Metropolitan university are fighting a serious attack on jobs after management announced it wants to lose 330 full-time equivalent jobs.
Management want an initial round of voluntary redundancies, but state that there is not enough money to guarantee voluntary redundancies terms for all the proposed job cuts, and that the shortfall will be made up of compulsory redundancies paid at the legally minimum amount. Management refuse to guarantee those rejected for voluntary redundancies will not then be made compulsorily redundant.
London Metropolitan UCU and Unison union intend to campaign against the cuts.
