Open University Staff Strike

 

Seven Open University regional centres are set to close in Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Gateshead, Leeds, London and Oxford.

Staff members of the University and College Union have united and staged a one-day strike this week with plans to continue the fight on 2 December.

The closures will see over 500 job losses, which have concerned the staff and students as the OU’s council plan to create three larger student support centres.

Peter Horrocks, vice-chancellor of The Open University stated that the move was a positive action made to improve student services.

“Our priority now is to maintain and improve services for our hard-working students while supporting our staff as we start to implement these changes”.
