#ucuRISING #UCUstrike Here's why I'm striking. Whilst I was studying for my PhD I had to take on some teaching work to pay the bills. I couldn't afford to rent a flat or even a hotel on what I was paid. So for 2 years I slept on the library floor every night before lectures

Dr Katie Cooper is on strike
A decade from my PhD with my second book almost finished, having contributed to my department’s REF and won awards for my teaching, I never imagined that I’d still be on a fixed term contract, with no job security. That’s why I’m striking today #UCUstrike #ucuRISING

University staff pay has fallen 25% since 2009 - with more cuts planned. They've had 35% cuts to their pensions. 90,000 are on insecure contracts. All while Universities hoard £40 BILLION in reserves. That's why staff are fighting back. Solidarity! #EnoughIsEnough #ucuRISING

We accept that salary is deducted for strike days, however something UNIMAGINABLE is happening at @QMUL 🤯🤬🥴 QMUL are threatening to dock 100% of salary INDEFINITELY until staff make up the teaching cancelled due to strike 🧵1/n @qm_ucu @ucu #ucuRISING #UCUstrike https://t.co/TBS4anotJ5

if you’re a FT permanent academic & you’re not on strike, PLEASE rethink. think of the casual staff using food banks. the fixed termers who can’t put the heating on. the future gens who can’t have academia as a future because of crap conditions. it’s for us & them #ucuRISING

The Guardian: Why I’m joining the university staff strike "I am in my 60s & throughout my life, I have received a decent wage & many benefits...I am not striking for me, but for younger colleagues, & indeed all young people in the workforce." #ucuRISING https://t.co/H4hKTUu3Zs

I see 'refund discourse' has once again resurfaced. So here's a reminder that only ~40% of tuition fee income is spent on teaching, so £9,250 x 40% / (roughly 200 teaching days per academic year) = students get £18 refund per strike day or maybe £3.50 per missed class #ucuRISING

Well, @DrJoGrady just handed Raj Jethwa his ass to him live on national television 🥊 Seriously though, employers are floundering on why they cannot settle this dispute. #ucuRISING #Newsnight.

Dr Rachel Pope is on strike #UCUrising
Jethwa’s pants are on fire here. The sector’s running a £3.4 billion profit. VCs combined are creaming off £45 million. It’s the junior lecturers who can’t afford it. #EnoughIsEnough #ucuRISING To the pickets! https://t.co/uG3wxnYIgv

🌅 Good morning everyone in @ucu! 🌅 We’re wondering if our VC or the other senior management will pay us a visit on the picket today… we haven’t even glimpsed them yet 👀 Anyone else seen theirs? #ucuRISING

I’m striking today, along with thousands of other workers in universities and colleges. There are a range of issues, but low pay and poor conditions facing junior staff are pre-eminent among these. Staff working conditions are student learning conditions. #UCUstrike #ucuRISING https://t.co/7tJc4ZnIaa

Listen to the audience response Andy Burnham "Don't blame people who are fighting for their family income, if the Govt lets nurses, paramedics, firefighters go out on strike, they deserve a fair pay rise, give them a fair pay rise now" #bbcqt https://t.co/n1s6PNsyVX #ucuRISING

Not joining the picket line today as I feel the need to rest and stay still, but as always, @WolvesUCU have my full support as an FE teacher, a union rep, a former student, a friend to many involved, and a human being. You deserve better. Be loud and fight proud! 💕 #ucuRISING https://t.co/IXdCC0VnC1
