2,176 Eric Bushell Manchester, PCS North West Branch Vice Chair I fully support your action against this kind of barbaric behaviour from very low grade employers who see profit before people. Stand firm and show them that when we stand together we c an not be defeated.
2,175 Michael Leach author This closure is putting short-term financial gain before the welfare of students. Not everyone wants to study in the middle of a city, the Crewe Campus is an accomplished asset that should not be lost.

2,142 Ailsa Cox Ormskirk, Edge Hill University So much great work in the arts has been based in the Cheshire campus. A shocking, short-sighted decision by management.

2,139 Peter Cranie Liverpool, Edge Hill University
2,138 Lindesay Dawe Belfast, Ulster University Cuts in HE in the UK seem to be driven by little evidence based research on what is best for the most important group of people within HE institutions, their students. Vice-chancellors and senior management across the country seem motivated by an avaricious market driven agenda, one which will undermine the quality of UK HE education. Academics and staff must resist this through collective action.

2,128 Patricia Hornby Atkinson Ormskirk, Edge Hill University It is shocking that our Universities, who are growing rich from an iniquitous fees system, should treat those who are at the 'chalk face' and who have, and continue to, deliver excellence, with such contempt and disregard. If only they were as careful when it came to senior management pay and perks and making profit from property development. No compulsory redundancies at MMU!

2,121 John Costello Manchester UK, The University of Manchester There should be no compulsory redundancies at Manchester Metropolitan. This causes poor morale and job losses that cannot be justified.

2,117 Klaus Thiele Loughborough, The University of Nottingham I believe the damage once done cannot be undone even when there is more money. For example, the damage already done the reputation of Manchester Metropolitan University might deter new prospective staff -- and maybe even students from choosing this university in the first place for a long time.

1,975 Glyn Heath Salford, Univeristy of Salford MMU one of many Universities dismissing staff through redundancy and intensifying the work load for those who remain. The education sector has high levels of work related stress, which is a Health & Safety issue. Meanwhile employers continue increasing the pay and numbers of managers.. MMU Branch UCU, continue the struggle to prevent these redundancies. National UCU should "Grey List" MMU now

The political landscape can turn overnight. It is a catastrophically myopic institution that tries to 'read' the 'market'. The Employer's duty is to minimise compulsory redundancy. MMU is reneging on that duty. That will not be forgotten.

1,798 Lewis Cox Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) I studied for three years at MMU on the Crewe campus and if it wasn't for the lecturers I had there are somewhat responsible for moulding me into who I am. It is a great shame to see them be made redundant like this. I expected better from such a good University.
1,797 Lisa Platt Bury
1,796 Bruce Baker Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle University The management of Manchester University have a very cynical view of how a university works. I am sure the University -- which is the faculty and the students, not the management, whose job is only to facilitate the academic work of the University -- will come together and prevail and hopefully send some of them packing for the jobs in the business world they really want, or the Job Centre.

I am hearing of redundancies being made in office staff while workloads increase for the remaining staff, leading to burnout and (in some cases) people having to take time off due to stress. Bad for the staff, bad for the university.
