Strike action temporarily suspended in response to Manchester Arena atrocity

Out of respect for the dead, the injured and those who have lost loved ones in the terrible events at the Manchester Arena last night, and amid continuing security concerns, the University and College Union (UCU) has advised Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) that it intends to suspend the strike action planned for this week.  Members will be grieving with the bereaved and the whole of the city and will want me to send a message of sympathy and solidarity for all those directly affected.  While we grieve we shall not forget our determination to stand by those of our colleagues who remain at risk of losing their jobs.

MMU UCU Branch Secretary
