Here’s a full breakdown of the units where the speakers plan to strike.
Professors and academic staff at 58 universities across the UK voted in favor of the strike this winter.
Two votes were held, one on whether to strike on pensions and the other on wages. 33 universities voted in favor of the strike on both issues, 21 barely on wages and four on pensions only.
The UCU, the teachers’ union, is demanding a pay rise of £ 2.5,000 for all staff, as well as serious progress on the issues of pay gaps and precarious contracts.
When it comes to pensions, UCU argues that recent changes to the pension plan have made the situation worse for speakers.

A spokesperson for Universities UK said the result of the vote was “disappointing”, adding: “Universities facing the prospect of industrial action are well prepared to mitigate the impact on student learning and minimize disruption for staff choosing not to participate The majority of university staff are not members of UCU.
Jo Grady has previously told The Tab that the strike will most likely take place before Christmas.
