Your Exec’s Response To The Upcoming Strike Action

On 24 October, UCU announced that they would be going on strike over working conditions, pay and pensions. Following this announcement, we have held consultations with different groups of students to understand their views, hence ensuring that our stance on the issue is one that adequately represents the student body. Student feedback has been overwhelmingly supportive of the staff taking strike action. We truly believe that staff working conditions are students’ learning conditions and we stand in solidarity with the 3 unions – UCU, Unison and Unite – as they fight for an equitable educational system and stable working conditions.
