University Lecturers Take Action Over Pay

Staff at Coventry University are withholding students’ marks and boycotting exam boards as part of a national camping of industrial action over pay.

Leaflets are being distributed across campus and a letter has been written to the Vice-Chancellor Mike Goldstein outlining the lecturers’ view.

They are upset that they have only been offered a 3 per cent pay increase, which they say is below inflation.

There is also disquiet that working conditions have not been improved and that some contracts are under threat.

The industrial action is supported by the higher education unions - NATFHE, EIS, UNISON, MSF, GMB and TGWU - plus the National Union of Students.

It follows recent disputes surrounding the School of Engineering, where jobs are now at thereat because of a £1 million loss, and anger among students and staff over inadequate resources at the Ellen Terry building, the former Odeon.
