    We have seven faculty buildings and its outside the faculty I belong to they are striking, so could be fun trying to get in apparently they aren't meant to be causing any disruption to our learning but I don't know quite how that works..!

    I don't care about not having a lecturer for a few lectures etc but it does seem a bit shite that as students we're missing out on tuition hours that cost us 3K a year, you'd think the uni would listen to them to stop it etc but doesn't look like it.

    Could be an interesting day :D

    Haha unlucky! Out of three people I have today only one is striking.

    I'm glad they are striking though, that people actually care enough to complain! :)

    Saw three people outside Uni today, we were rather confused but it makes sense now! I don't think any of my tutors in particular are protesting or striking though...

    Haha nice one on the day off front!

    My lecturer who is striking says he doesn't really want to but doesn't have a choice because he belongs to a certain trade union which supports it/most people in it are striking and it would cause him more trouble to not strike than it would to strike even if he's not majorly fussed about it..!

    I can see why they are doing it but not sure if it will get them far, as always :(

    Yep same with our lecturers, I know at least 2 don't really want to strike but if they don't they kicked out of the union :eek:

    Well that was a wasted day!

    Went in, waited and waited for out tutor who said he was going to start early and he didn't show up so we all left. Only four out of thirteen showed, wish I hadn't bothered could have took the dogs out but will be getting busy everywhere now school time is nearly up :(
