5 days to action… Why strike?

5 days to action… Why strike?

Because it has the support of the student body. The Sheffield University Students Union last week passed a motion of unconditional support for the action. In it, they note that “student education is adversely affected by demoralised and undervalued staff” and resolve to “work and organise with other student and trade unions to mobilise against cuts, privatisation and marketisation in education”.

It is important to remember that this strike would not be happening if universities had listened to and treated staff fairly on pay levels, and taken action to address injustices on the gender pay gap and overuse of casual contracts.
