This blog supports the University and College Union strike today.
Our sector did not cause the economic downturn. We didn't cause the one before that, either. We work hard, we contribute to society and we are good at our jobs. We deserve fair pay, conditions and pensions. We do *not* deserve to see those cut to pay for a deficit caused by others.

(Note to the unwise: I come from a family of union activists. My whole family work in the education sector. I know what I'm talking about. Anyone taking the 'teachers and lecturers have it cushy line' may not like the response they get from me.)
