UCU union members at the University of Brighton were set to begin a two-day strike on Wednesday this week. Workers will escalate action, culminating in an all-out strike, if bosses don’t back down.
Union members are fighting to defend jobs, pay, conditions—and their union. Bosses have said they will choose which issues they negotiate with the union, effectively derecognising it.
A solidarity message from Brighton students union pledged “full support for UCU’s action”.
The Unison union at Brighton university is also backing the strikers.
