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.
