Max Watson: Why I’m supporting Mark Campbell for UCU Gen Sec

This is a guest post from Max Watson, UNISON NEC, and London Met UNISON Branch Chair. Reblogged from here.

I’m supporting Mark Campbell for UCU Gen Sec, for unity in action. At London Met Uni we’ve had to take robust stand against job cuts and privatisation – including coordinated strike action in 2009 and again in June 2011.

Watch short clip below from our most recent strike – Mark Campbell lead his union branch out on strike against job cuts at London Met that were predominantly support staff jobs represented by us in UNISON. As a result of our united action we doubled the redundancy pay, and significantly reduced the number of compulsory redundancies.

I fully back Mark’s campaign and look forward to working with him as General Secretary of a fighting, democratic UCU. United we stand, divided we fall.
