Strike action at Brunel

April 29, 2005

Staff downed tools at Brunel University this week for a one-day strike to kick off a period of industrial action that will include a boycott of assessment and examinations.

The Association of University Teachers is fighting plans to make up to 60 academics redundant. It is understood that a major review of degree courses in the School of Social Sciences and Law, which would have approved a new degree programme, was postponed because of the action.
