Strike 15th and 16th of October 2009
STUDENTS and lecturers barricaded the doors of a university building - in protest at plans to cut staff jobs.
Hundreds of staff walked out of London Metropolitan University today (Thursday) for a two-day strike.
Many students ignored the university's pleas to "attend classes as usual" and joined the picket lines.
London Metropolitan University, which has campuses in Holloway and Highbury, has told staff that it needs to cut 550 staff by July 2010.
