Staff at the University of York are preparing for three days of strike action. Starting on the 1st December, the university is set to join 57 other universities in the UK in strikes over pension cuts and working conditions. The University and College Union (UCU) is demanding action against unmanageable workloads and insecure contracts before the issue can be resolved. Between the 1st and 3rd of December, there will be no in person or online teaching given to students.
