I am just about to pick my Ucas choices... Should I be applying to a university when their staff are out on strike? My Brother was at uni in previous years and told me his classes were all cancelled because of strikes. Should this be in my deciding factors or not?

Seeing as how strikes are usually widespread across a lot of universities, and usually only last a few days, it is not something to base your decision on.

You will spend a lot more of your time at a university that isn't striking than is.

I wouldn't. You may find that a uni that did not previously strike, does, or that one that previously did, doesn't during your time there. Strikes are quite a bit less disruptive than they used to be given how much material is online. As above, they tend to be relatively short lived anyway.
