University of Aberdeen branch backs strike action over job losses

 Staff have backed strike action at the University of Aberdeen in protest over the loss of 150 jobs. UCU rep Andrew MacKillop told the BBC that ‘members have made it quite clear that they reject the job losses proposed by the university’, adding in the THE that ‘any move to make staff compulsorily redundant will be strongly opposed’. The National reported that the job losses come at a time when the university has strong reserves, and that some of the planned savings would be used to boost surpluses at the university. Members are due to lobby the university court on 30 June and the branch is currently considering next steps.
