UCU members at Salford University have held lunchtime protests against the university's plans to cut jobs.

The protest, which took place on the final day of student graduation, follows moves by the university to place staff in 'redundancy pools' with dozens of jobs at risk.

In the past year the institution has announced seven lots of redundancies and talks last week aimed at resolving the dispute broke down last month.

The students' union added that the university's lack of communication and consultation with students had lead to a 'culture of misinformation'.
