Now direct action and industrial action is inevitable. Unison are balloting for strike action, probably in late June; UCU will be striking on 30 June. They will also strike at the beginning of next term. Also students have to do a lot of mobilisation to get students to refuse to co-operate with the university’s procedures — to get students to refuse to transfer to other courses, for example. But university is breaking up and we will have to do that over the summer. We are facing a difficult battle. There will be a community march in Islington on 11 June.
Now the local decision has been made, we will need national pressure to up the ante and win.
