We’re invited to join Goldsmiths UCU solidarity rally online 6-7pm, Thurs 12 May. GUCU has been fighting to defend the university from a vicious programme of staffing cuts, course closures & restructure but after 37 days of strikes, management has persisted in forcing through compulsory redundancies of professional services staff as well as academic staff in two departments. Please show your support by joining the rally & donating to the strike fund. Register for rally here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcvduCrrDwoGNCSioD2aBHfWnLWX3TR5Gx7
