Launching Precarious@Gold!

This website is to provide information about different workers’ struggles at Goldsmiths College, University of London. As of November 2018, we are bringing the campaigns Justice For Cleaners, Goldsmiths Workers’ Action, and Anti-casualization@Gold together under the name Precarious@Gold. Following the success of the Justice For Cleaners campaign to bring cleaning staff in-house (announced September 2018), these groups – in solidarity with related groups on and off campus – are fighting the damaging effects of the marketisation of higher education for all of those involved. As students, staff, and stakeholders from the wider community, we are working together to resist the neoliberal forces which result in exploitative working conditions, substandard learning conditions and detracting from the idea of education as a public good.
