Goldsmiths workers join national strike

A united strike today by staff at all levels of Higher Education, involving members of the University and College Union, Unison and Unite (with support too from students). Pay is the main grievance, with university staff experiencing a 13% pay cut in real terms over the last four years. 

It was well supported at Goldsmiths in New Cross where, despite the rain, 100+ people turned out to picket university buildings and to listen to a range of talks at an open air 'teach out'  covering such subjects as food poverty, politics as pantomime, education policy, internet surveillance, Convoys Wharf and more.

Fair pay for all! (outside the ex-Deptford Town Hall meeting)
