(MSN) – University staff across the U.K. are to walkout on Thursday, kicking off the biggest-ever industrial action to affect higher education.
Around 70,000 members of the University and College Union (UCU) will strike on Thursday and Friday, and again next Wednesday in a dispute over pay, pensions and contracts. They say staff are “burnt out” and have “had enough of falling pay, pension cuts and gig economy working conditions.”
