In case you missed it on Sat, over the weekend our #Goldstrike action for #NoJobCuts at @GoldsmithsUoL made it into The @guardian! Worth a read for a summary of our local dispute, the national pensions & @ucu #FourFights disputes and the links between them https://t.co/hz99WCmU0c https://t.co/SBNOEvo45Y GoldsmithsUCU photo

More international solidarity - a letter expressing concern about @GoldsmithsUoL management's plans to axe 52 jobs, from a colleague at a French university. These statements in support of #NoJobCuts are so welcome, thank you so much! #Goldstrike https://t.co/nnOS130Gg0 GoldsmithsUCU photo
