Staff from Gloucestershire universities go on strike
By Sarah Wood | 14th February 2023
Staff from two universities in Gloucestershire are striking today, as part of three days of action this week.
The staff from University of Gloucestershire and Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester are among 70,000 people from 150 universities striking over pay, conditions and pensions.
Members of the University and College Union taking action include some of the lowest paid staff in the university sector - cleaners and catering staff - as well as academic staff.
A total of 18 days of strikes are planned for the remainder of February and March - including another three days next week.
For most of the institutions affected, this is the third wave of industrial action this academic year - following strikes in September, October and November.
The National Union of Students (NUS) is backing staff taking the strike action, which will impact 2.5 million students.
