TALKS seeking to end a pensions dispute between university staff and Universities UK will restart today.

Representatives of the University and College Union (UCU) will meet others from UUK over worries that have been triggered by fears university staff could lose up to £10,000 a year in pension changes.

This week is the third week strikes have been held. The first day of strike was held on February 22, while UCU members taking part went on strike for three days last week.

Five days of strikes are planned for next week, from Monday.
