Lambeth College UCU members have voted unanimously for an all out indefinite strike.
A meeting today (Wednesday) saw 98 UCU members vote for the all out action. Strike action is now due to start on Thursday 1 May.
UCU members at the College are fighting new contracts that will mean worse pay and conditions. The new contracts are all about longer working hours, two weeks less holidays a year and much worse sick pay policy too.
Lambeth College management have also sold off the Brixton site to the Department for Education and there are now plans for a free school to take over.
This is a crucial battle that every trade unionist and activist needs to get behind. There will be a strike rally at 6pm at the end of the first day of strike action on 1 May at the Karibu Centre, 7 Gresham Rd, London SW9 7PH.
Every trade unionist and activist should rush messages of support now to firstname.lastname@example.org
