UK: One-day strikes to hit four universities

Simultaneous one-day strikes are planned at four UK higher education institutions, as the University and College Union seeks to coordinate its response to a wave of redundancies in the sector, writes John Morgan for Times Higher Education.

The stoppages are scheduled for 5 May at King's College London, University College London, the University of Sussex and the University of Westminster. Union members at the four universities voted for industrial action in opposition to redundancy plans announced by their respective institutions. There will be hundreds of jobs lost at the institutions.
