Strike action at University of Bristol

The University of Bristol will be hit with three days of strike action from Wednesday 1st December 2021 to Friday 3rd December 2021 organised by the University and College Union (UCU). Full details of the strike and background to the Pension and pay dispute can be found here.

The UCU members are demanding that their employers take decisive, meaningful, national action to close gender, close gender, ethnicity, and disability pay gaps and reduce workloads and casual employment of lecturers, researchers, librarians, and student support staff and revoking the retirement-altering deep cuts to their pension scheme the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS).

The UCU members will also be taking action short of a strike, starting with working to contract, from 1st December 2021.

DO ALL YOU CAN TO SUPPORT. Turn up on picket lines, send messages of support and contribute to the fighting fund. We’ve heard that the Bristol Unite GPM&IT branch has donated £200, can other branches in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire area match that?

The UCU will be picketing from 08:30 on Wednesday 1st December 2021. School and Department picket locations and details as regards the Thursday and Friday strike days are available from the UCU.
