WATCH: Kingston UCU members engage in strike action

Members of the University and College Union (UCU) at Kingston University went on strike on Monday and Tuesday to achieve better working conditions.

Lecturers have said that they are fighting on four fronts: unsafe workloads, shrinking pay, rising job insecurity, and pay inequality seen in ethnicity, disability and gender pay gaps.

Pickets gathered on Penrhyn Road campus on February 21 and 22, with more strikes scheduled between February 28 and March 2.

Members also went on strike in December 2021, making this the second series of strikes of the academic year.
