AUT strike mandate

The membership of the AUT has voted by 66% for strike action. An even greater number (81%) voted for action short of a strike (such as refusing to mark exams etc). The union also has the backing of the NUS (and locally here in Glasgow, the support of the SRC, since the Glasgow University unions aren't affiliated with the NUS), so the action will be supported by students. Hopefully this will make the employers sit up and take notice, and give us a strong bargaining position.
