strike action

The higher education unions (AUT and NATFHE) have both balloted members on strike action, and the results came through today. The membership of both unions have voted to strike and action has been set for 7th March if no negotiation from the employers is forthcoming. The dispute is about pay and conditions following the large cash injection into the sector after the introduction of topup fees in England and Wales and the record grant from the Scottish Executive. I shall be joining my colleagues in walking out in a couple of weeks.
