University staff to go on further strikes over pay dispute

STAFF at both Oxford University and Brookes will go on strike again in a dispute over pay.

The University and College Union (UCU) has today announced plans for a series of two-hour strikes. The union has already been on strike twice since October.

The first three two-hour stoppages will take place at these times:

  • Thursday, January 23, 11am-1pm
  • January 28, 2pm-4pm
  • February 10, 9am-11am

University employers refused to improve a one per cent pay offer, the union said.

UCU general secretary, Sally Hunt, said: "Any kind of disruption is always a last resort but, after five years of pay suppression and members 13 per cent worse off in real terms, we have little option but to escalate our action."
