Birmingham Uni staff may strike
#2
This kicked off half way through making a postgrad application to the IAA for their archaeology course. My application's on hold until I've a better idea of how the dept. will support its courses and students with reduced staffing, etc but it's not looking good. The 3 week University ballot period ends this thursday, 14 feb for staff at risk of redundancy at the IAA. If strikes go ahead, 3 half-day walk outs are planned from Feb 28 as well as 2 full day strikes. The only staff not as risk are the professorial staff - this is stated in the docs in the link:

I'm also concerned about the (negative) impact of letting go of so many key staff in the IAA (& whatever incarnation it becomes) will have on the REF Assessment, which replaces the RAE. The deadline for REF submissions is 29 November 2013, with assessment in 2014 and the results coming out the following year.
