UCU members have backed strike action in two separate legal disputes, one on pensions and one on pay, casualisation, equality and workloads. UCU have announced a second wave of 14 days of strike action starting 20 February 2020, following the successful action taken in November & December. We are also taking action short of a strike including working strictly to contract, not covering for absent colleagues and refusing to reschedule lectures lost to strike action.
