"The protest was called by the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain's (IWGB) Security Guards and Receptionists branch and was supported by the Goldsmiths Students union and the Goldsmiths branch of university teachers union UCU. The outsourcing company with the contract to provide security services at Goldsmiths, CIS, does not offer the contractual benefits that the university does to its in-house staff, including occupational sick pay maternity and paternity leave, and university pensions. As a result of outsourcing, security staff, who are predominantly from BAME backgrounds, also suffer from arbitrary discriminatory practices, such as being denied the use of the common canteen area and not being allocated parking spaces on campus. Not only is this unjust, creating a two-tier system at the University, it also clearly contradicts the University’s current slogan of ‘One Goldsmiths’."
