University employees to look to strike negotiations?

Middlesex University workers are to consider strike action over the next three weeks.

05 September 2011

Members of Unison who work for Middlesex University are to be balloted on whether or not to pursue industrial action.

This is because further cuts have been planned after an initial round of voluntary redundancies failed to save enough from the budget, the Enfield Independent reports.

Strike negotiations may now be sought as the two parties to try and come to a resolution.

Paul Howell, the union's branch secretary for the university, said: "The increased workloads and stress created for the staff left behind will do little to improve this reputation, the university has used up what little good will it has."

Up to 300 posts could be under threat if compulsory redundancies are introduced and the ballot to decide what action to take will be closed on September 23rd.

Dave Prentis, general secretary of Unison, has warned that government cuts are going to affect every part of the public sector.
