  - You will recall Sen addressed the UCU congress and informed you then  that the Branch was then in the middle of an ERS ballot. We are happy to inform you that following a favourable ballot with 83% prepared to take strike action under the new draconian law, union has called our branch for two days strike action in support of Sen. This is despite our member  having to face uncertainties over their jobs due to the impending merger planned to take place on 1 August 2017, subject to ministerial approval.

  - We will be striking on Wednesday 28th  June 2017 and Saturday (enrolment day) 1 July 2017. The addresses for picket lines on the 28 June are College of North West London, Brent NW10 2XD ( nearest tube Dollis Hill  ( main campus) and at Wembley Park , HA9 8HP.
