Defend education: Solidarity with Lambeth College strikers

A call on all trade unionists to join our mass picket

Thursday 1st May, 7am

Lambeth College Clapham centre

45 Clapham Common South Side

London, UK SW4 9BL

From May 1st, UCU members at Lambeth College are taking indefinite strike action in defence of their contracts of employment.  These changes to our contracts include:

– loss of 2 weeks’ holiday
– cuts to sickness pay
– extra working hours for no pay

Lambeth College is a community college. It has been serving the community for many years providing a second chance to those students who did not succeed in gaining the qualifications they desired at school.

The conditions that teachers teach in are the conditions that students learn in.  These changes to our contracts will mean that staff will not be able to continue to deliver the excellent education that students deserve.

“We call upon all trade unionists to join our mass picket and to support our fight to defend education by helping us defend conditions that people teach and learn in.
An injury to one is an injury to all.”
