NO TO JOB CUTS AND TRADE UNION VICTIMISATION AT LONDON MET

Recently announced compulsory redundancies of permanent faculty staff, and other recent job losses resulting through the removal of all teaching hours from some long serving HPL (Hourly Paid Lecturer) staff, at London Metropolitan University.
We believe that these lecturer job cuts will directly negatively impact on the student experience. This is particularly problematic as the university attempts to make itself more attractive to potential applicants and provide an enhanced service to its existing students.
