STAFF at Winchester University are set to walk out for five days at the end of the month after the university said it wants to get rid of 55 posts – around 10% of the workforce.

Members of the University and College Union (UCU) have announced they will be on strike on Tuesday 28 May, Wednesday 29 May, Monday 3rd June, Tuesday 4th June and Wednesday 5th June.

The union has said that, as well as the strikes, its members will also undertake ‘action short of a strike’ from Thursday 30 May. This will involve strictly working to contract, not covering for absences, and boycotting open days.
