Strike action paused! The strike action which caused significant disruption to the first half of the semester has been paused to allow for a Joint Expert Panel to be convened to make an in-depth assessment of the pension fund. It is highly unlikely that strike action will resume this academic year, although nothing is certain.

You can read more about the reasons for the dispute here, and you can also read an article I was asked to write for the Times Higher Education Supplement here.
