Victory for staff and students at London Met!

December 16, 2009

Tower Hamlets Respect welcomes the news that London Metropolitan University’s disgraced Board of Governors yesterday evening resigned in the face of massive opposition. Hundreds of people attended a demonstration yesterday to demand an end to the reckless mismanagement of the Governors, which has brought the university into disrepute and led to the threat of severe job losses and course closures.

Commenting this morning on the news, Abjol Miah, Respect’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Bethnal Green and Bow, said: ‘This is great news for all of us who wanted to see justice done at London Met University. I want to applaud the staff, trade unions and students who united to defend their university at this critical time. I hope that following today London Met recovers from this management crisis to once again offer a reputation for excellence that serves the whole community.’

He added: ‘I will be continuing to monitor the situation in dialogue with students and trade unionists to ensure that there are no more job losses or cuts to teaching and research, and that the University quickly regains a firm financial footing.’
