Amanda Sackur has reported the following on the facebook group SAVE LONDON MET:
"Urgent update. The situation is worse than we thought. The unions have now received formal notification of planned job losses and management intend to get rid of 550 full time equivalent posts (could be around 700 or more people if you take account that many are part-time). This is a quarter of the staff of the university! It is more urgent than ever that we mobilize everyone."
If the management is able to put this through, the University is certain to go under. We cannot stand on the side and watch this happen. Now action is needed.
