Glyndŵr staff vote to strike over job losses

17 June 2014

Staff at Glyndŵr University have overwhelmingly voted in favour of industrial action in a dispute over job losses.

Of those who took part, 84% of UCU members voted in favour of industrial action. The ballot was well supported by staff, with 57% of those eligible to vote, voting.

The senior management of the Wrexham-based university has proposed a restructure which would cut up to 60 posts.

UCU regional official, Margaret Phelan, said: 'Staffing costs are not the problem here and axing experienced, senior staff is not the solution. These job losses would do untold damage for current and future Glyndŵr students. That's why we have seen such strong support for industrial action. We will be announcing plans in the next few days.'
