United Kingdom -Possible strike at University of Birmingham -June 6, 2012

Unison has started a ballot among members on a possible industrial action at Birmingham University, the first in 30 years. The support staff at the university is disappointed that contrary to some other universities, Birmingham has refused the demanded 2% wage increase that would lift pay to the living wage level. University management says that at 1,2% its offer regarding the support staff wages exceeds that of any other employee group at the university , while it remains the only group to decline the wage offer.
