The solidarity and support you have shown striking staff has been huge and inspiring. Despite the weather, picket lines have grown day by day and hundreds of students and staff marched on Wednesday. It’s quite clear our campaign is gaining traction, and we are already making decisive wins.
Our Vice-Chancellor Sir Keith Burnett is now clearly listening to the concerns of students and staff. He is calling for talks with UUK without preconditions, as well as reaching out to other Vice-Chancellors across the UK. We are very pleased that we will be meeting him along with Sheffield UCU.
Sheffield is at the forefront of the national dispute to save staff pensions, so it’s vital that we maintain this momentum. The strike will continue next week, from Monday 5th March to Thursday 8th March. The Students’ Union continue to support the action and encourage students to support the strike and their lecturers.
There are many ways to show your support. Join in and help defend our education.
