    Members of the University and College Union (UCU) will walk out between 25 November and 4 December, following votes in favour of industrial action.

    Aston University, the University of Birmingham and the University of Warwick are among 60 across the UK which will be affected by the strikes, UCU says.

    As well as the eight days of strike action, union members will begin other forms of industrial action when they return to work, such as working strictly to contract, not covering for absent colleagues and refusing to reschedule lectures lost to strike action.
