Solidarity to colleagues at the University Of Leicester
Colleagues at the University of Leicester are shaping for a strike following news that the university plans to make up to 145 staff members redundant. These redundancies would include ‘critical workers’ such as library staff and maintenance staff, who were essential to campus infrastructure during the pandemic. Others at risk include researchers with a strong track record in authoring high-impact publications and in winning large grants. Further details about the proposed cuts and strike action can be read here.
