We’ve just received this message from Mandy Brown at Lambeth College UCU

Management at Lambeth College have given a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies for teaching staff. The guarantee was issued at 4pm on Wednesday afternoon, the day before the planned 1 day strike on Thursday 11th July. This follows months of campaigning by UCU against job losses and against the introduction of a graded appraisal policy.

Following the announcement that the number of compulsory redundancies had been reduced to 7 and that management would resume talks over the graded appraisal policy, UCU responded with a lunchtime strike on Thursday 4th July. This action was well-supported by teaching and support staff across the college as well as the local community.

After the next 1 day strike by UCU members was announced, a guarantee was given that there would be no compulsory redundancies for teaching staff and that talks would begin after summer over the graded appraisal policy.

Industrial action has been suspended and the branch will meet after the summer break to decide if further action is necessary.

Thanks to all for the many messages of support the branch has received during this dispute and thanks to Lambeth SOS for your continued support.
