The UCU Branch Secretary, Dave Muritu, has been dismissed by Sandwell College. Last year Dave Muritu helped organised 5 days of strike action that won a sector busting pay rise of 6.5% over 3 years, as well as agreeing to pay the Foundation Living Wage.
Sandwell UCU view this sacking as an anti-trade union act and are currently balloting for industrial action, following re-electing Dave Muritu as their Branch Secretary.
Sandwell UNISON Branch Committee agreed to support the UCU campaign. Members can sign the online petition at https://speakout.web.ucu.org.uk/reinstate-david-muritu/
