UCU members at London Metropolitan University took strike action on 29 September over job cuts, attacks on conditions and the victimisation of union reps. One striker told the Socialist: "We're on strike for two reasons, firstly two of our buildings have been sold and the whole of city campus has been moved, leading to redundancies and the closure of many courses. The course I teach is the only one of its kind in the world and that's now gone. Its cultural vandalism and that's unacceptable. Secondly, a further 395 redundancies have been announced as a result of restructuring the university. There has been no consultation and around half of the remaining staff are on zero-hour contracts." photo NSSN
