The University and College Union (UCU) strike at the University of Edinburgh is currently ongoing, with countless lectures and seminars being cancelled as staff hit the picket lines. The staff are striking in response to planned pension changes by Universities UK. Fourteen days of strike action are being planned, with many calling for talks to resume between the two parties in an attempt to call off the strike. The strike action is taking place at many across the Universities. In this article, we take a look at some of the best images from the opening two days of the strike.
