University of Bath advertizes for strikebreakers

The University of Bath wants to break a strike and is happy to break its own rules to do it.

An email sent to postgraduate students in one department reads:


Trade Union Bill threat to unions

tu bill

The Trade Union Bill is a threat to all workers.  Next Thursday the three recognised campus unions and the Students Union are co-hosting a meeting to explain this and to discuss how we can oppose it.   Our main speaker is Baroness Jan Royall, former Labour leader in the House of Lords and currently a Pro-Chancellor at the University.   The Bill is currently working its way through the Lords, after receiving support in the House of Commons (see the news item from the South West TUC below for more information about the Bill).
