The University of Nottingham enters its 13th day of strikes, which were expected to end last week, but the University and College Union rejected the proposed deal from Universities UK. Threatening to disrupt final exams and assessments, particularly in the summer term.
Protesters this morning have staged a ‘sit-in’ in the Trent Building. At least a dozen students are lining the halls of the building that houses the Vice-Chancellor’s office.
Akin Askinoglu, a representative of the protest group – UoN Student-Staff Solidarity Occupation – says the sit-in will last “well over 24 hours.” The protest aims to disrupt, among other things, a Vice-Chancellors’ meeting this afternoon.
