Industrial Action - Update
The Union has advised that students' continue to study and revise for their exams and e-mail the Vice-Chancellor to highlight their concerns.
Nationally, the new Secretary of State for Education, Alan Johnston has advised the Union to accept the pay offer describing it as "very generous." On Monday the Lecturer's Unions turned down a pay increase of 12.6% which is just over half of what they are demanding.
As the exams come closer students' fear that examinations may not be set and this will prove particularly difficult for the final year students who would be due to graduate at the start of the summer. In a worst case scenario the strike could cause graduations to be delayed, however lecturers remain confident of a resolution to the situation.
