Staff at the University of Cumbria are walking out today as part of a wave of nationwide strike action in a row over pay and conditions.
The dispute comes after a pay rise offer of just over one per cent from the university's governing body.
According to the university, the strike will not affect exams during the one-day walkout.
Strikes by staff at the University of Cumbria will cause disruption tomorrow, but will not affect exams, according to the university.
The forthcoming strike action proposed by UCU is part of a national dispute.
The University of Cumbria has discussed the matter constructively with UCU locally, and all parties are committed to handling the action and any associated impact in a responsible and sensible way.
The industrial action could potentially cause some disruption to formal teaching but submission of coursework and assignments as well as examinations will not be affected. The university is making every effort to mitigate any impact on students.
Business leaders from across Cumbria have been hearing about the state of the global economy at a special lecture organised by the University of Cumbria.
It was part of the university's aim to share knowledge and expertise by bringing business experts to the county.
"It's really important because we're a regional university but we are globally connected and anything we can do to elevate global issues to our business community and to our students is vitally important."
