Trade union victimisation at University of Liverpool

UCU believes that our longstanding rep Dawn Holdman has been dismissed from her job because of her trade union activities. In a restructure involving significant numbers of staff, Dawn was the only one to be made compulsorily redundant. She is also the only active trade unionist in that school.

Dawn has worked tirelessly to assist members of staff with problems at work and now the union is asking you to stand with her. Please sign the petition and write to the vice-chancellor at to complain (suggested text here).

We condemn the victimisation of trade unionists and call on the University of Liverpool to reinstate UCU rep Dawn Holdman.

256 Gordon Fernie The University of Aberdeen As a former member of staff at the University of Liverpool and UCU member I am disappointed to learn of Dawn Holdman's dismissal. Victimisation of trade union members does nothing to support the reputation of any workplace, let alone a seat of learning, and especially not one that places emphasis on the importance of the "ennoblement of life".

245 Sabrina Elasri Bolton College, Graduate of The University of Liverpool As a Liverpool graduate and now a UCU member, I find it extremely disappointing that my former university has done this. Liverpool as a city has one of the most illustrious trade union histories in the UK and, for the university to act in such a way, is hypocritical and blatantly dismissive of the community that nurtured it.

233 Pauline Barrie Roehampton University As the Chair of my own UCU Branch I utterly condemn Liverpool's management for making a long standing rep., Dawn Holdman, redundant.
