University staff in Oxford could boycott exam marking
6:40am Wednesday 29th January 2014 in News
Academics are threatening more action if employers do not meet pay increase requests.
Members of the University and College Union (UCU) at both Oxford Brookes and Oxford University yesterday held a second two-hour strike over wages.
Now, the UCU says it is looking at potentially boycotting exam marking later in the academic year if progress is not made.
They want a pay increase of at least three per cent, instead of the one per cent put forward.
Oxford University UCU spokesman Terry Hoad said: “If it comes to it, boycotting marking will have more of an effect and impact on the university.”
