University workers call off strike (PA)

University workers call off strike

A planned strike by hundreds of university workers has been called off after employers denied receiving legal notification of the action, it was announced.

Members of Unison at London Metropolitan University were due to walk out on Thursday in a row over jobs.

Unison official Vicky Eaton said: "The employer is insisting that they were not notified of the strike, even though we contacted them correctly.

"We have done our best to ensure that we have complied with the legal procedure, but we cannot be certain our members will not be victimised, so have had to cancel."
