Despite the inclement weather, it was reported that a number of first time picketers took part in this first day of ten days of strikes over three weeks in this dispute and the Four Fights dispute over pay, workliad and casualisation.

Several of those striking saw the dispute as about more than just their pensions, commentating to us that if university bosses got away with attacking their pensions, other employers could see it as a green light to attack their workers pensions.
