What’s the point of in-housing?
The security staff at Goldsmiths are outsourced to CIS Security Ltd instead of being directly employed by the university. Like many outsourcing companies, CIS routinely flouts its legal responsibilities towards its workers. Two of the many examples of this: sick pay is entirely unregulated and rarely paid while holiday time is near impossible to arrange. Bringing the workers in-house would mean they would receive the same benefits as other employees of Goldsmiths.

What’s the point of outsourcing?
The neoliberal restructuring of universities takes many guises. Raised tuition fees, precarious terms for teaching staff, endless campus construction geared towards profit and not in the interests of those of us who work here, let alone the local community… Outsourcing is part of this. It allows the university to intensify the two-tier division of its workforce with impunity, getting outside companies to do their dirty work. e.g. In 2016, CIS restructured the shift patterns and workloads of security staff, so that extra work previously done by other Goldsmiths staff was delegated to security staff without raising their pay. This second tier of workers is mostly made up of low-paid workers of migrant and BAME backgrounds; clearly universities exploit social segmentations to facilitate their reorganisation of campus work. We have already seen how the Goldsmiths cleaners got hit with a similarly savage restructure by the outsourcing company ISS last year. But we’ve also seen them fight back and win their own in-housing demand. The fight against outsourcing is part of a wider struggle whereby all of us who work on campus, including students, and the local community, can take back control of the university.

What about the union?
The security workers have chosen the Independent Workers’ of Great Britain to support their campaign. This is because the IWGB have a great record of actually fighting to get workers’ demands met, instead of sitting on their hands and doing nothing. As soon as the branch reached membership density of 50% and the workers voted unanimously to begin the campaign, IWGB wrote to Goldsmiths demanding in-housing by 1st Feb. As no positive response was received, the workers and the union worked together to launch a public campaign.

Comments in support of campaign to in-house security

Comments by Goldsmiths staff members submitted alongside the Goldsmiths Security Staff In-Housing Petition:

Please give the security staff the same conditions as the rest of Goldsmiths staff.”

These guys have suffered really harsh cuts over the years, and are massively overstretched. Amazingly, they always have a smile for me when I ask for their help with something.”

Do the right thing, bring the security staff in-house now!”

Students and staff: fight to bring Goldsmiths workers in house!”

Security officers at Goldsmiths are such an amazing colleagues, and I give my full support for their efforts to be treated as they deserve.”

Treat all workers properly. Solidarity!”

Security staff are always friendly and helpful. They deserve to be employed by Goldsmiths, improving their rights and contracts.”

Without our colleagues in security, as with the cleaning staff, the college would cease to function. Let’s insist on justice and fair play.”

I fully support bringing the Security Service in-house.”

UCU ballot on Pay and Equality 2018/19

Casualisation has been a central feature of the erosion of UK higher education over the last twenty years. It has paralleled and made possible most of the worst aspects of marketization within the university sector. In the HE Pay and Equality Ballot 2018/19, we are voting on whether or not we want to contest the normalisation of precarious and insecure working conditions for our colleagues – the impact of which can be seen in testimonies supplied by our colleagues

University management has systematically undermined the security of permanent employment for academics, professional and research staff, which it sees as too costly or risky. By increasing the use of insecure and provisional contracts they have offloaded the risk of a fluctuating market onto a reserve army of casual staff. This matters because staff on insecure contracts struggle to deliver the high level professional service expected of them in the face of working conditions that leave them underpaid, vulnerable and constantly facing the prospect of unemployment.

Casual staff make up a growing part of the university workforce and they play a key role in delivering core content of degree programmes. Yet, according to 2016/17 HESA data compiled by UCU, over 61% of staff are on insecure contracts at Goldsmiths. Ultimately, the costs of these tactics trickle down onto students, who receive their standardised just-in-time education by burned-out staff members, permanent staff who suffer from excessive workloads as well as the institutional consequences of dissatisfied students.

But casualisation is also a key mechanism used to support the fiction of resource scarcity in the sector. This has allowed a hyper-competitive climate within academic employment to flourish and has diminished workers’ capacities to fight back against ever worsening conditions. Casual staff working hourly paid contracts are almost always doing many hours of free work to do their jobs properly. For many, teaching is not simply a rite of passage in their academic career, but is one of their main sources of income and takes up a sizeable part of their working week.

The principle of “equal pay for equal work” is often not being enacted and current pay conditions do not reflect the reality of time-spent working as teachers. A report by UCU in 2015 found that 40% of university staff on insecure contracts said they earned under £1,000 a month. Almost a fifth (17%) said that they struggled to pay for food and a third (34%) said that they struggled to pay rent or mortgage repayments. A similar amount (36%) said that they struggled to pay household bills like fuel, electricity, water and repairs.

Below are some excerpts of testimonies we’ve gathered from casual staff at Goldsmiths which confirm all of the above in grim detail:

“After paying my rent and the bills, I have around £250 to live on per month. I have had to take a number of part-time jobs over the years in order to sustain myself financially, including paying my £2000/year PhD tuition fees. This has an important impact on my PhD writing as I am often unable to dedicate enough time to it – this being another source of great anxiety.”

“My job prospects don’t look good. As this is my third year of teaching the department will most likely not offer me a fourth contract as this is technically not allowed. I’m preparing myself for even more precarious casualised working and living conditions after I finish my PhD and consider resorting to my old job in order to be able to pay the bills.”

“Even after three years of teaching it takes me at least twice the amount of time than allocated to be able to properly mark essays. It is impossible for me to read a 3000 word essay, make notes, write feedback, fill in the report and upload it on the VLE within 35 minutes.”

“Recently I was unable to put my name on my tenancy contract due to my financial insecurity. The agency said that a student grant is not a “certain income” and that as a result I do not count as the “employed professional” they require.”

“If I were to work to my contracted hours I would not be able to provide students with the standard of teaching they expect and deserve.”

“There was no training, guidance or support given or even offered to me in preparing my classes. Nevertheless, and perhaps because of that, I worked very hard to prepare my one weekly seminar. I spent at least 8 hours, if not more in the first weeks, doing the required readings plus extra in order to be knowledgeable in the course content. Who wants to stand in front of a group of students not being sure about the week’s topic? I went to all the lectures even though I did not get paid for my time to do so, nor for the vast majority of my time preparing the seminars I was responsible for. It’s grossly unrewarding and frustrating, working so hard and knowing that most of it is for free.“

None of these are exceptional cases but reflect a very common reality experienced by casualised staff. The Joint Higher Education Trade Union National Claim 2018/19 that has been submitted to the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) to which the current ballot refers, makes substantial demands on the part of casualised staff. It stipulates that a vote in favour of the claim will establish a mandate to force the UCEA to commit to radically transforming employer orthodoxy with regard to casual contracts. This is a crucial opportunity for UCU members who benefitted from the militancy of their junior colleagues during the USS strikes to show solidarity to a campaign that will drastically improve the working conditions of precarious workers, a struggle which will undoubtedly enhance the working lives of all academic staff.

This week we are asking all GUCU members to show solidarity with our casualised colleagues, by sharing the poster and flyer about conditions at Goldsmiths/across the sector – and by casting your vote in the pay an equality ballot.

Goldsmiths Security Staff In-Housing Petition

SIGN THE *STAFF* PETITION HERE.

SIGN THE *STUDENT PETITION* HERE.

SIGN THE *COMMUNITY MEMBERS* PETITION HERE.

On Saturday 13 January, Goldsmiths security guards union branch (The Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain Security & Receptionist Branch) voted unanimously to campaign to be brought in-house at Goldsmiths. The workers are seeking the same terms and conditions as their in-house colleagues, which include a workplace pension and equal entitlement to holiday, sick, maternity and paternity pay, as well as other staff benefits.

Galvanized by deteriorating working conditions and the recent in-housing announcement for the ongoing cleaners’ campaign, security workers have organised themselves with confidence that staff and students will support their efforts for fairer working conditions. Security staff at Goldsmiths have gone many years without union representation, so it is with great enthusiasm that they welcomed the presence of IWGB on campus: a union whose principal remit has been to represent predominantly low-paid migrant and/or BAME workers facing precarity, such as outsourced cleaners and security guards. Within the space of a few months, security staff have successfully reached and surpassed the required 50% membership density with IWGB, showing a fantastic unity of purpose and organisational coordination.

As with cleaning staff, our colleagues in security face significantly worse working conditions than regular members of staff at Goldsmiths as these workers are employed by outsourcing security firm CIS Security Ltd. As such, security guards are treated as second-class workers despite providing a vital and demanding service for the university without which it simply would not function. Some security guards have been at Goldsmiths for more than 15 years and in spite of their loyalty to the college over that time, have only seen their working conditions worsen.


Some examples of the detrimental working conditions endured by security officers at Goldsmiths include:

  • In 2016, CIS restructured their operations at Goldsmiths, wholly to the detriment of the working conditions of security staff. This restructure shifted responsibilities and increased workloads; extra work previously undertaken by other Goldsmiths staff was delegated to security staff without raising their pay. Pre-2016 restructure there were 11 security officers who attended to staff, students and the school property on the day shift and the same number for the night shift (with each shift running for 12 hours 7am-7pm / 7pm-7am). In addition to this there were extra floating staff for the day shift. The number of workers has since been reduced to 9 security officers per shift. Security guards now regularly walk more than 15 miles per shift patrolling the campus.  
  • A widespread lack of “proper” i.e. permanent contracts for many security officers, and a large reliance on zero-hour contracts – even for those with years of service – means there is little job security for many staff members. Security officers have complained in numbers to CIS management of the inconvenience of being paid in the middle of the month but nothing has been done to address this issue. Security officers report that on occasion wages have not been received on time.
  • Health and safety directives administered by CIS Security Ltd, which stipulate that security officers patrolling areas at night should never work alone, are not being adhered to at Goldsmiths. Security officers are required to patrol the New Cross area late at night unaccompanied and have testified to feeling unsafe at work. Workers have been threatened with violence whilst doing their job and no reasonable measures to improve staff safety have followed the reporting of such incidents. Additionally, security officers are regularly at risk when patrolling physically unsafe areas of the college alone (such as rooftops) or when checking on intruder alarms when the university is locked up, practices which are contrary to the health and safety directives given.
  • Security guards are forbidden from taking lunch in the college canteen and are not provided parking space in the college grounds. The absence of such basic amenities demonstrate the everyday conditions of a two-tier workforce which leave workers feeling peripheralized and undervalued in their own workplace.
  • Further details on some of the incremental changes in workloads and working conditions are detailed on the Precarious@Gold blog.

As the Justice for Workers Goldsmiths campaign have argued before, reputably toxic outsourcing companies such as ISS are not exceptional cases. The outsourcing sector thrives by aggressively undermining workers’ pay and conditions and allows institutions to outsource employment responsibilities to less regulated private agencies. As outsourcing predominantly impacts facilities services in the university sector, these cost cutting methods always come at the expense of health and safety standards.

CIS are legally required to provide the statutory minimum holiday and sick pay to their employees. However, just as with ISS and the cleaners, this legal requirement is not formally implemented by CIS, with workers testifying that sick pay is entirely unregulated and rarely paid while holiday time is near impossible to arrange. And just like ISS, CIS management has been singling out security officers actively organising themselves with their union and subjecting them to intimidation. Union busting is illegal under UK law and this will not be tolerated by the Goldsmiths community. IWGB has already been forced to write to CIS and Goldsmiths management regarding anti-union activity (letter sent 23 Jan 2019).   


Following the successful cleaners’ campaign, representatives of Goldsmiths management were eventually forced to admit that ISS had indeed flouted many of the employment standards that the institution prides itself as upholding. Goldsmiths management acknowledged that outsourcing cleaning services had negatively impacted the working conditions and morale of cleaning staff, had adversely affected cleaning standards and had permitted communication between cleaning staff and Goldsmiths administrators to break-down. This was all to vindicate many of the concerns we, with the support of over 300 members of Goldsmiths staff, raised with management very early on in the year. The only way to avoid repeating the same mistakes is to bring security staff back in-house immediately. By doing so they will benefit from the same payroll and HR departments and the same employment rights as all other in-house members of staff.

As workers at Goldsmiths, we show solidarity with the concerns of our colleagues and signal to Goldsmiths’ Senior Management Team and college council that there is strong support for bringing security staff back in-house as soon as possible.

We believe swift and decisive action now, in line with Goldsmiths values of being socially aware and socially engaged, actively promoting sustainability and fostering a social and intellectual community within, and beyond, Goldsmiths, will serve the long term interests of the college.

Security staff are a crucial and valued part of the Goldsmiths community, they deserve respect and employment parity. Union representatives of Goldsmiths security guards have requested that negotiations regarding in-housing begin no later than 1st February 2019 (read letter sent 15th January 2019 here). If Goldsmiths management do not enter into negotiations with IWGB by 1st February, we the undersigned are fully prepared to stand with our colleagues in their campaign for justice.

In Solidarity,

Justice for Workers, Goldsmiths
