We posted a roundup last Thursday of the local coverage our action has been getting here in Cardiff and in Wales. As we said then, we’d rather not be talking to journalists about terrible pay & conditions at Cardiff University. If our employers supported their staff, we wouldn’t need to…
The student produced local news site The Cardiffian wrote: Cardiff University staff strike over “perfect storm of problems”.
Wales.pol covered the strike with interviews with UCU members and students:
The Cardiff Tab wrote about ‘barking in solidarity’ in Dogs of the Cardiff picket lines: The strikes continue.
And here’s our media spokesperson Andy Williams talking to The Voice:
@CardiffUCU Media Spokesperson @llantwit talking to us recently about what happens when you try to turn public universities into commercial businesses. Their 8 day strike continues tomorrow Monday 2 Dec. All students are being asked to support them.

Cardiff’s student newspaper Gair Rhydd wrote: UCU strikes hit Cardiff University.
Meanwhile, as we continue with our Action Short of a Strike, our members, our students and our supporters are explaining on social media why we have had to resort to this – so keep following @CardiffUCU and keep sharing!
