Around 100 staff at Liverpool Hope University are to lose their jobs by September 2011.
The university announced that one in 10 staff would be made redundant as it attempts to slash annual costs by £6m in response to government funding cuts.
Redundancies will hit across the board, affecting the university’s 300 academic staff as well as administrative staff at its Childwall and Everton campuses.
A small number of courses will also be cut, while some departments will be merged.
Merseyside Right to Work was established in May of this year to give the local region a campaigning united group against the cuts which we knew were going to come with the election of the coalition government. Merseyside Right to Work has organised demonstrations outside Liverpool Town Hall on the day of the budget and public spending review announcements, and took 70 people to the Tory Party conference demonstration in Birmingham in October. Merseyside Right to Work works with and supports other anti cuts groups whilst also making links between the different struggles that everyone are facing.
