Recently announced compulsory redundancies of permanent faculty staff, and other recent job losses resulting through the removal of all teaching hours from some long serving HPL (Hourly Paid Lecturer) staff, at London Metropolitan University.
We believe that these lecturer job cuts will directly negatively impact on the student experience. This is particularly problematic as the university attempts to make itself more attractive to potential applicants and provide an enhanced service to its existing students.

Update from SFC reps on preferencing and filling the gaps

Preferencing and filling gaps should be seen as two separate processes.
Filling Gaps: This is just LU running the Fit for the Future location computer to see if any staff who are OE or covering down can be moved into a substantive position.
They may also move a CSM1 who is covering down at CSS into a temporary CSM2 location.
At this time LU has accepted our demand that they do not make sideways moves (same grade) under filling the gaps.
