Halesowen college lecturers strike in defence of victimised trade unionists

Striking lecturers at Halesowen College marked Valentines day with a giant card, featuring the message "No Love Lost" and the names of 12,000 supporters who have so far signed the petition against the victimisation and sacking of four maths lecturers for trade union activity.

College management have used results and targets as an excuse to bully lecturers. One of the four, UCU branch secretary Dave Muritu, told us: "I'm really heartwarmed to see the branch standing up to bullying management. If these sackings go unchallenged, no teacher is safe"

We offer full solidarity to those Halesowen College UCU members who are taking strike action in defence of trade union rights.
