UNISON and UCU have been asked by London Met Students Union to remove their logo from this website because there is no formal position to support this campaign against 165 job cuts. So we are archiving this website and will no longer be using it.
We cannot remove the logo from this website but we trust by publishing this statement there is no implication that METSU is supporting this current campaign.
Before we shut it down, though, please find a statement signed by student activists, hosted on the 'Students Assembly Against Austerity' website.
And for further information you can still go to the London Met UCU or the London Met UNISON websites. You can also sign a new joint-union statement to 'Stop the job cuts at London Met', which was launched at our rally and which is hosted on the national UCU website.
Thanks to the METSU for drawing this to our attention. We are naturally disappointed that the student union feels unable to support this campaign at this moment in time but we hope to work together in the future on common ground.
