Strike action starts as members fight to reverse cuts

24 November 2022

Strike action at higher education institutions across the UK started today, with UCU's biggest ever picket lines, as members fight to reverse USS pension cuts.

UCU general secretary Jo Grady said: 'Our members deserve a proper pay rise and the money is there to deliver it. Vice-chancellors now need to urgently address the concerns of staff otherwise our 70,000 members will escalate this dispute into next year.'
