Tomorrow we are back on the picket line. We will be standing up for what is right. The Vice Chancellor’s of UK’s Universities should be holding their heads in shame. They have let the students down and let staff down. We are the University. @ucuatqub
So, this is a first for me. This morning I will journey to campus, not to work, but to picket.

I am on strike.

Not for my own needs, I love my job, I love the students,

I am on strike!
Off to @UCUNUbranch picket lines for for beeps and the craic with wonderful colleagues I rarely see in person because of life-sapping excessive workloads. Love and solidarity to everyone out in the cold today ♥️🤘

Solidarity to everyone on the picket lines tomorrow!!!
Hits different when you know the whole UK is out today. Heading for @UCUGlasgow picket with comrade @GlesgaBettyBoop in a little while ✊🐶 #ucuRISING
Apologies for not replying to all the lovely #BooktrustRepresents tweets today; I will next week. I'm joining the #DigitalPicket so won't be tweeting anything research and work related during the strikes. Solidarity with my @ucu colleagues all over the country #UCURising #UCU
Solidarity to all striking for fairer conditions - and, what a brilliant video on the power of unions @ucu. Do share, dear friends:
Almost there, colleagues and friends.
I dunno if it's the 'rona, but this made me emotional. This is it, we can do this.
I'm going to be on strike tomorrow. I intend to strike on every day that my union @ucu calls for. That isn't possible for everyone, I know. But a single day is possible for most, or 1 day in 10, or every other day, or 2 days out of 3, or half a day. @BristolUni
Our @BeastlyProject will be a bit quieter today & tomorrow in support of strike action in UK Universities. This 🧵 from @ucu explains why so many of us have taken the difficult decision to strike ⬇️
I'm striking tomorrow, it's important to take some kind of a stand against what is happening. I'm proud to walk the same path my father and grandfather did, we take industrial action to make all of our lives collectively better. There is no other choice.
We’re ready. ✊🏾✨🌈
Just making my strike playlist for the morning.
See you on the picket line.

Great stuff Jo. It’s quite simple, not fighting means losing is the only outcome. More work, less pay and poverty in retirement as your reward.
Natalie: Proud to strike in my capacity as clinical tutor to nail that staff wellbeing & mental health is affected by desperate capacity issues across universities in clinical academia, let alone pay cuts. I do not cross mental health boundaries nor piket lines. In solidarity 💪
Solidarity to all those striking today! #ucuRISING
Solidarity with those striking tomorrow and onwards ✊
Solidarity UK universities. We are with you.
We will stick together, we will fight together, we will strike together, and we will win this dispute together. Simple as.
Solidarity to UCU✊️
Hope your action is effective; inch by inch and mile by mile!

Solidarity 👏🏻👏🏻
Today I am on strike with @SwanseaUcu Today we Rise!!
In reply to @ucu
You have my support and any student who doesn't understand why you are striking, frankly, don't deserve their uni places.
Fair warning to US academic colleagues

I'm employed (precariously) in the US. But a British academic, there's going to be a lot of noise about this urgent industrial action in the UK

Take note: our US system is at least as screwed. We should all be paying attention to this
All solidarity ✊❤️‍🔥
Thinking of friends on strike and on picket lines today and tomorrow … as a Vicar and chaplain I hear about the stress and anxiety many people live and work under, it seems to me that systemic change is needed to improve life and give hope …
Solidarity to colleagues Striking this week and next in the pursuit of a better tomorrow.

Ya que queremos imitar su sistema de evaluación y publicar en sus revistas, ¿por qué no copiamos también esto? 🤔🔥
Solidarity with @ucu members all over the UK today. It's not easy to strike year after year, but our futures depend on it.

My wish is that every worker on the planet has the protections and benefits I had as a unionized public school teacher in in the state of MA.

Strength and solidarity to everyone striking today 💪
