We’ve written to our union colleagues at Birkbeck, SOAS, LSE, City, UCL, KCL and RHUL asking for their support for our security officers’ strike next Tuesday and Wednesday. We’ve asked them to help us, and you can too! You can:

  • Attend the picket line and let the University of London that it can’t treat its staff this way.
  • Spread the word amongst colleagues and friends.
  • Write to UOL Chief Operating Officer Chris Cobb expressing you unhappiness with his handling of the security officers at chris.cobb@london.ac.uk.
  • Support the security officers by contributing to the Crowdpac.
  • Support the IWGB on social media: Facebook & Twitter.

Hi,

The IWGB has announced a second round of strikes of security officers working at the University of London central administration buildings on the 16th and 17th of May. You can find more information on this press release.

The security officers are demanding an end to zero-hours contracts and that the university implement a pay rise it promised six years.

The first strike held on the 25th and 26th of April received wide coverage in the press, being picked up by the Huffington PostThe GuardianNovara Media & the Camden New Journal.
