Swansea University Strike Supported by Students
3rd December 2013
Swansea Socialist Students brought solidarity, cakes and biscuits to our staff at Swansea University today taking strike action for the second time this term. Swansea Student Union also supported the strike with hot drinks.
Forty members of staff held a very visible picket line at the university entrance. Everyone having met at the previous strike, the atmosphere was cheerful and familiar. The picket was a real forum, with students and staff discussing grievances around pay and a shared outrage over what has been branded "toxic" behavior of the self-styled "CEO" of the School of Management.
The picket also discussed where the campaign for fair pay would be heading next term if employers refused to budge. But one thing staff at Swansea University know for certain is that they can count on students to support them. "See you next strike!" they said.
