The UCU strikes over pensions, pay and jobs will begin this Thursday with a day of action in Scotland followed by others in different parts of the UK and a national shutdown of post-16 education on Thursday 24 March. This is a chance to strike a blow for education just days before the TUC demonstration on March 26.
EAN is calling for students as well as lecturers to join the strike, stay away from lessons for the day and join the picket lines instead.
