Christine has been an NEC member for the last 4 years and a strong and key branch officer at Manchester Met for over 10 years. As her department is reorganised, Christine is the only member of the team who has not been offered a suitable redeployment opportunity. She is now facing compulsory redundancy. This is clear victimisation of a trade unionist and a very serious attack on our branch.
We need all the support we can get. We need to show management that the Branch and UCU more widely will not be disarmed by these vicious underhand tactics and will continue to fight for all our members’ rights, including Christine’s, in the face of attempts to mould education to business demands.
An injury to one is an injury to all.
