Birmingham Uni staff may strike
#1
Academics at the University of Birmingham will be balloted over strike action in protest at what a union has described as the institution's "campaign of forced redundancies and aggressive management tactics".

The Birmingham branch of the University and College Union said 17 academics in the Institute of Archaeology and Antiquity were threatened with redundancy, as well as at least seven from its department of nursing and physiotherapy and two in its School of Education.

"Whilst some of the staff who filled these posts may have negotiated voluntary severance deals with the university, there are a number of staff who still face compulsory redundancy, and for those who remain at the university the reduction in posts will result in an increase in workload," it says, in a statement.
