Our next block of strike action covers Tuesday 14, Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 February. Let’s all play our part in putting Higher Education employers, including the University of Exeter, under renewed pressure now that UCEA (the national representative body negotiating on their behalf in the pay/working conditions dispute) has agreed to participate in a new set of negotiations overseen by ACAS.
