BUIRA statement of support for the UCU strike

BUIRA statement of support for the UCU strike

As we see this week begin with a continuation of industrial action, we send out a statement of continuing support to all of our members and colleagues involved in this historic  dispute.  We also want to extend thanks to all of our students who have stood with our colleagues in solidarity.  Everyone has demonstrated an unprecedented commitment to the action and the continuing efforts to defend the status quo on our pensions has been incredible.

We are at a very critical moment in this dispute as the UCU and UUK meet with ACAS to hold a facilitated discussion about the situation. We hope this leads to a clear proposal for a durable solution to the pension problem by the USS and the Pensions Regulator.
