Nottingham University lecturers are at the picket lines today at the start of the 48-hour strike over an unresolved pay row.
Lecturers at universities across the Midlands are joining a UK wide 48-hour strike today after talks failed to resolve a pay row.
Protests are planned around the UK with rallies taking place in Nottingham, Birmingham, Brighton, Belfast, Cambridge, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield.
Members of the University and College Union (UCU) will also refuse to work overtime, set additional work, or undertake any voluntary duties like covering timetabled classes for absent colleagues.
We will have more updates from the picket lines through the day.
