The dispute at Lambeth College is still ongoing. Please ask your union branch to support the campaign. A model motion is below:

Branch notes:

  • that in George Osborne’s recent spending review, FE has been hit the hardest
  • government cut to FE funding this year was 8% across the board
  • Lambeth College has had its biggest funding cut to date of £3m and teachers now face redundancies as well as course closures in valued departments including Construction and Business and IT

Branch believes:

  • education should be a prority especially now when millions of young people are unemployed
  • working class families should not have to pay the price for a financial crisis that they did cause, while those that are responsible see their wages increase, receive huge bonus payments and continue to avoid paying their taxes
  • Lambeth College plays an important role in the education of our community and must be defended


Branch resolves:

  • to send messages of solidarity to the college via Mandy Brown Branch Secretary
  • to urge members to support the college picket lines
  • to publicise as widely as possible the fight of UCU and Uniso members to defend courses and jobs at the college
  • to invite union members from Lambeth College to speak at our branch meeting
  • to organise a solidarity collection towards striking members hardship funds
