University of London staff in-House now

Senate House, London. Tue 6 May 2018



 

 At the end of a long day of picketing workers and supporters pose in front of the gates in Russell Square

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Before they go and make a lot of noise at the gates to the bottom of Senate House itself, which are firmly

 padlocked. The university has brought in extra security to replace those on strike - and fighting their staff has

 apparently cost them over £400,000 - wasted money when they could have talked with the union and come

 to a sensible settlement. Jason Myoer-Lee of the IWGB speaks
     
 and others make a lot of noise

 

 A UCU rep who came to bring support from the Liverpool branch speaks before he has to catch his train home

 

 

 

 

 The workers want to do a good job, to be paid reasonably and get decent conditions of service and to be treated

 with dignity and respect. Outsourcing means they are over-worked, underpaid, get minimum legal conditions and

 are treated like dirt. They want a decent employer - the University of London itself, to be brought back 'in-house'.

 They march around the building, beating drums

 waving flags

 and carrying placards and psoters

 

 'University of London - Shame on YOU!'

 Jason Moyer-Lee of the IWGB on the steps of Stewart House introduces

 Chip Hamer (Grim Chip) of Poetry on the Picket Line, who performs several of his poems

 to widespread appreciation.

 Poetry on the Picket Line also contributes to strike funds
