University pay strike
8:00am Wednesday 5th February 2014 in News
The dispute between the University and College Union and university leaders was prompted when UK university staff refused to accept a one per cent pay offer for this academic year.
UCU members are complaining that the one per cent pay rise offer represents a 13 per cent pay cut, in real terms, since 2009.
UCU general secretary Sally Hunt said UK academics were paid significantly less than colleagues in most other English-speaking countries.
