Manchester Met UCU members strongly reject compulsory redundancies

UCU calls on the Vice Chancellor and the Governors to avoid any and all compulsory redundancies as a result of the withdrawal over the next two years from MMU Cheshire.

In a consultative e-ballot of branch members, close on ninety per cent of those who voted agreed to call for industrial action should any UCU member be threatened with compulsory redundancy. Over half of all branch members used their votes in a decisive show of support for colleagues threatened with losing their jobs this summer at Crewe.

The branch is committed to continue talks to try persuade the University to invest in the staff for the sake of our students, and the future of MMU. We are asking for clear and decisive action from management to avoid compulsory redundancies. Our campaign continues.
