Goldsmiths UCU Virtual Picket: 10am – 5pm every day, 1st – 5th March

Goldsmiths Rally: 5pm Friday 5th March

Goldsmiths senior management wants to make £6 million worth of cuts to academic and professional staff. This means at least 120 jobs (probably far more) will be lost, leading to axed degree courses, increased workload and a worse student experience.

But Goldsmiths lecturers are fighting back! From Monday 1st to Friday 5th of March, we are asking you to tweet your support for Goldsmiths workers fighting for their livelihoods and students’ learning conditions! Use the hashtag #SaveGoldsmiths, tag @GoldsmithsUoL, the Warden Frances Corner (@FCorner), Goldsmiths University College Union (@goldsmithsucu) and Goldsmiths Justice for Workers (@CleanersFor). Let’s put the pressure on Goldsmiths to take these devastating job cuts off the table.
