Angela Rayner’s message of solidarity to UCU strikers

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, sending a message of solidarity to the UCU strikers, said:

 

“Labour stands in solidarity with striking university workers’ today. They are on strike due to the failed marketised system created under the Tories.

 

“They don’t do so lightly. Reasonable terms and conditions and fair pensions are the minimum they should expect, and their treatment is a stark contrast to the eye watering pay packets of a few Vice Chancellors.

 

“It‘s about time for the employers to put staff and students first, get back to the table and talk.”
