Anyone else got today and tomorrow off because of the strikes? I've got a late essay to finish so I'm actually busy today, but should be free to spend tomorrow doing absolutely nothing

Yep, all my lectures apart from my 9 o'clock have been cancelled tomorrow, so I'm gonna boycott it and join the lecturers and fellow students to march through the city centre and on to a rally!

But you might get some days off later in the year, the NUT are planning strike action in response to the so called betryal by the government, who gave the teachers a 5 tiered performance related pay system, which they are now planning to scrap and replace with a three tiered system so reducing the possiblity for further advancement.

The AUT university teachers union is striking today and tomorrow over some pay issue or other- only some tutors are members of this union so some courses are running some arent. Student top up fee strikes are tomorrow.
