So it won't have escaped you that unis are on strike today (#UCUstrike)... Why is this happening? (1) UK HE is degenerating into a chaotic free-for-all that is collapsing quality on all fronts. I wrote a long essay about it on my old (2010-20) blog (1/4): https://t.co/mKs9ogEaNt

Resist the race to the bottom for pay and conditions, resist the language of “vocation” being used to exploit our labour, resist the demand that we should #loveHE above our own lives and well-being. Don’t scab, you can join the union at the picket line! #ucustrike

Seriously, the way that senior leaders are treating staff.

These fat cats must be so full of self-loathing and so dryly unsatisfied.

Imagine getting your kicks by intimidation and stealing from your already exploited staff.

Dr Steffi Doebler is observing ASOS
@stefdoebler
According Richard's point below, I would think that it is unlawful for Universities to dock 100% pay for ASOS (where ASOS means that are staff doing their contracted work & no more). Or at least it should be. #UCUstrike

Laura, last of the Brunnen-G
@LauraJaneMayne
ASOS deductions are confusing, and this doesn't clear it up but it provides a lot of insight (see point 3 and point 4, "orders to do missed work on return").

Also this gem:
"Striking is also a form of leave from work in the exercise of a fundamental right."

Personally, I think a university’s job is to provide an environment for people to do good science, and how is that possible with burnt-out researchers rushing work on short contracts?

Another example of how a university weaponise immigration status in order to break up the #UCUstrike action.

At the same time, UCU MMC are trying to advocate for universities to pay for visa + IHS fees of migrant staff yet ignore how easily this can be used against them.
