Welcome to Leicester University and College Union
Strike on Tuesday the 3rd of December
The second UK wide joint strike between higher education unions is set for Tuesday the 3rd of December.
Universities across the UK will again be brought to a standstill by strike action unless a row over pay can be resolved in the next few days.
UCU, Unison and Unite trade unions members working in higher education will walk out in a dispute over pay.
Staff have been offered a pay rise of just 1% this year , which means they have suffered a pay cut of 13% in real terms since October 2008.
