The strike is ON as yesterday’s negotiations offer no improvement.
UCU negotiators met with the University and College Employer Association (UCEA) this week in the hope of finding a solution to the current dispute amidst growing anger over news that vice-chancellor pay rose by 6.1% last year. Regrettably UCEA made no improvement on the 1.1% pay offer to staff or on measures to address gender inequality and insecure contracts and the strike action will continue on Wednesday 25th May and Thursday 26th May next week as planned.
QMUCU pickets will be at all the main entrances. QMUCU members should checks emails for details.
