Victory: compulsory redundancies stopped at Leicester University

The threat of solid strike action has won a victory. The campaign by Leicester University and College Union (UCU) means the threat of compulsory redundancies is off the agenda for at least the next year.
Many staff have had a hellish summer. They've been worried about their jobs and many have been forced out of the university. Others have been forced into roles they're not happy about.
UCU is confident a new agreement with management will give the union greater say and limit uni bosses' powers.
