The University and College Union has announced that its members at 61 universities will go ahead with 14 days of escalating strike action over a four-week period.

The industrial action is in protest against changes to UK higher education’s biggest pension scheme, a plan that would reportedly make members £10,000 a year worse off, in retirement than under the current set-up.

The strike will start with a two-day walkout on 22 and 23 February. The days will continue to increase to strikes of three, four and five days in subsequent weeks (26-28 February, 5-8 March and 12-16 March).

“Staff who have delivered the international excellence universities boast of are understandably angry at efforts to slash their pensions. They feel let down by vice-chancellors who seem to care more about defending their own pay and perks than the rights of their staff,” UCU general secretary Sally Hunt said.
