Action short of a strike: Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Chris Day's statement:

“While we are supportive of those staff who feel they have no alternative but to take strike action, we are unable to allow this to occur on full pay as they are unfortunately in breach of their contract.

“To be clear, there is no possibility of our deducting pay from any member of staff who is taking action short of a strike by working to contract, and we have not done so during this period of industrial action.  

“I also met with the President of Newcastle University Students’ Union to discuss how we use the monies withheld to support students in a way the Students’ Union believe will have most impact on the majority of students.”
