Universities set to be hit by second day of strike action

Have your say

Sheffield university lecturers and support staff are being urged to take a second day of strike action on Tuesday as an increasingly bitter pay row continues.

Joint action is again being taken by unions UCU, Unison and Unite, who are angry about a one per cent pay offer that is below the cost of living for the fifth year running. Librarians, cleaners, security and IT staff could all walk out.
