There was an amazing turnout this morning, with pickets setup across the University campus entrances.
We have had great support and it was fantastic to see so many people here on a cold but bright Thursday morning although maybe not so surprising with 91% of voting members voting for strike action.
Statement by branch president Justine Mercer “I am stunned by the level of support that we saw this morning; this is totally unprecedented but so is the attack on our pensions. UUK need to be listening; they need to get back to the negotiating table. If these massive cuts are imposed it will harm all members of the pension scheme and do untold damage to our world-leading higher education sector. Staff deserve better; students deserve better.”
