UCU announce more strike action at Coventry University tomorrow

Members will be striking for two days


Members of the UCU at Coventry University will take strike action again this week over an ongoing row over staff appraisals.

The strikes are set to take place tomorrow and Wednesday, staff will be on the picket lines outside the university's main entrances on Gosford Street in the morning. Rallies and teach-out activity will also take place outside the Graham Sutherland building from 10am on both days.

UCU members at Coventry University have already been on strike previously for five days last year. The strikes which took place in November overlapped with graduation ceremonies.

Tweets found on the Coventry UCU account say that they have tried to negotiate with Senior Management and were unsuccessful again so they are taking strike action once more.

In the recent ballot at the university, 75 per cent of UCU members who voted backed strike action whilst 88 per cent voted for action short of a strike.
