Manchester university staff in strike ballot over job cuts

The University and College Union says more than 250 staff are in fear for their jobs after managers ignored agreed procedures.

“We now feel we have no alternative but to ballot for industrial action,” said UCU regional official Martyn Moss.

A university spokesman said management had offered “further discussions to try to resolve any issues”.

The dispute began in April, when the university announced 37 staff who had been on its redeployment register for three months or more could face redundancy.

“The move was a dramatic departure from the university’s policy of allowing staff to remain on the register until redeployed in a new role without fear of redundancy,” says the union.
