UCU today said it will be joining other unions in a day of action to defend pensions on 30 November. The union, which was one of four that took strike action in June, has also arranged a joint lobby with six other teaching unions for 26 October.

UCU general secretary, Sally Hunt, said: 'UCU members made it quite clear that they were prepared to strike to defend their pensions when they took action earlier this year. We have a lobby planned for 26 October during half-term and now a day of action at the end of November.
'We remain committed to a negotiated settlement, but if the government doesn't reconsider its approach then we will look at further action.'
