UCU Strike

Universities UK are proposing cuts of up to 40% to university staff’s pensions. As a result, University staff who are members of the University and College Trade Union (UCU) will be taking strike action for 14 days between 22nd February – 16th March. A consensus decision was reached by students at our democratic decision-making body – Guild Summit – that the Guild should support UCU in their strike action.
