United Kingdom -Pay dispute at universities -January 23, 2014

The members of the University and College Union are involved in a dispute over pay with universities. They rejected a 1% pay increase in 2014 that would have seen their pay drop by 13% in real terms in the past five years and announced plans for a series of two-hour strikes beginning on 23 January aimed at disrupting teaching at universities. The university workers condemned the claim by the employers, the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA), that the action was putting students’ education at risk.
