GUSRC Statement regarding Strike Action on 23/01/14

The SRC want to make students aware of a number of planned strikes by UCU over the coming weeks. The strikes are to be two hours in length and held on the following days & times.

Thursday 23 January 11am-1pm
Tuesday 28 January 2pm-4pm
Monday 10 February 9am-11am

The SRC wishes to reiterate our disappointment that negotiations between the UCEA and the UCU have descended, once again, to industrial action. We continue to support staff in their efforts to be fairly remunerated and recognise the pay offer of 1% currently on the table represents a 13% pay cut for staff over the past four years. We consider this unacceptable, especially in the light of improving financial forecasts for the sector in Scotland and the rest of the UK.

We ask that all staff planning to strike notify their students beforehand as per the UCU guidelines
