“Negotiators at Lambeth met with management yesterday. The number of potential compulsory redundancies is down to 5 for teaching staff and 4 for support staff. The threat of strike action has also brought back talks over the new PDR (appraisal policy) in which teachers are to be graded.

In order to reflect this movement, we will now be taking action tomorrow from 12 till 2pm. There will be a rally outside Clapham at 12.45pm, for all UCU members, where we will assemble in front of the college to highlight our demands for a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies and for a written guarantee that the new PDR will not be imposed and the old system will be used while talks continue.

Our position remains very clear. The branch took action to defend jobs and secure NO compulsory redundancies. Management have made huge savings already and will make future savings year on year by the loss of the 35 jobs which have gone. The total amount saved is over £1 million a year. It is now in their gift to agree to give us a guarantee for the few potential Compulsory Redundancies that are left.”
