Results from UCEA members’ poll of UCU strike activity on 22 and 23 February

26 February 2018

A UCEA spokesperson said:

“UCEA's polls of the 56 HE institutions which were the focus of UCU’s first two days of strikes on 22 and 23 February indicate that the overall impact in four out of five institutions was between ‘none’ and ‘low-medium’. We received feedback from just under half* the institutions targeted for strike action; as expected, some departments saw more impact and some very little.”

*27 HE institutions out of 56 facing strike action responded.
