United Kingdom -Higher education support staff on strike -November 02, 2013

Support staff from higher education institutions walked off the job on 31 October to protest against falling real wages and a meagre pay offer in the current round of collective bargaining. Trade unions Unison, Unite and UCU commented that real wages have fallen by 13% since 2008. The workers, including cleaners, security, administrative and catering staff, have rejected a 1% pay rise offered by the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA).
