University of Chichester, on strike this week

UNISON West Sussex branch members took successful industrial action on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd October this week in their dispute over pay in the Higher Education sector.

Photos below show the picket lines at the Bishop Otter Campus in Chichester and Bognor campus. The pickets were good natured and fun, of course, and lots of positive conversations were had with academic staff who have their own separate pay dispute.

The NEC has authorised strike pay of £70 per day to support this dispute, in recognition of the impact losing pay would have on members. Spirits are high and we hope for a positive resolution to this dispute.
