Thanks to everyone for their support for the massively successful security officers’ second strike last week!
We had a great turnout for the strike and the picket (you may have heard us distantly in the background at some point), and had fantastic support from staff as well.
After our encounter with Jeremy Irons on Tuesday we teamed up with striking UVW cleaners from the LSE on Wednesday for a joint picket.
Despite this, the University are still trying to claim ignorance of their 2011 promise on differentials, and are refusing to enter negotiations.
As such, workers voted on the picket line to call for 2 more individual days of strike action – dates to be announced shortly!
We need all the support we can get – please donate to the ongoing strike fund (https://www.crowdpac.co.uk/campaigns/1870/the-independent-workers-union-of-great-britain) and get in touch if you would like to help by writing to the University – we can suggest a draft template (email Danny at firstname.lastname@example.org).
