UK’s National Union of Students denounces potential strike

Traditional ally of lecturers union says students need a strike “like a bullet in the head”


 

In a move that is shocking observers, the United Kingdom’s national student lobbying organization is speaking against a potential summer strike by that nation’s university lecturers.

From The Guardian:

The University and College Union, which is looking for an 8% pay rise this year, has warned university employers that it will ballot members in higher education over threatened job cuts.

Wes Streeting, NUS president, said: “Given the effects of the current economic climate on the graduate jobs market, students need industrial action by university staff like a hole in the head.”

We’d never see such talk on a nation level in Canada.

  1. CFS- are you taking note?!

  2. “We’d never see such talk on a nation level in Canada.”

    Good, that means that we aren’t as far gone as the home of New Labour and the NOLS hacks that run the NUS.

  3. Bill is half-right. CASA wouldn’t think twice about selling out faculty the way NUS has.

  4. Well, CASA is a joke anyways
