Message of support from PCS Union in the North West

16 June 2017

On behalf of PCS members in the NW we offer our support to UCU members at MMU who are taking strike action next Tuesday 20 June and Wednesday 21 June over the closure of its Crewe campus and the employer’s failure to redeploy all staff to the Manchester campus. It’s disgraceful.

Sadly employers behaving like this is becoming more and more common. It’s deplorable when you know there are jobs available for experienced and dedicated staff.

Workers need to stand together.

In solidarity

Paula Wood
North West Regional Secretary

North West Regional Chair

Another message of support for our action:

To all at Manchester Met UCU Branch.

I am sending a message of support on behalf of Bolton College UCU, FE branch. The University’s failure to redeploy staff from the Crewe Campus makes no sense and reveals a high handed and unsupportive attitude to industrial relations. We hope that your action is successful in bringing the institution’s management to the table to find a better way forward and secure the redeployment of all affected members.

Yours in solidarity

Joan Bailey
On behalf of Bolton College UCU Branch
