STAFF at the University of Sunderland will strike tomorrow in a row over pay.

Members of the University and College Union, Unison and Unite take their first ever co-ordinated strike action in a row over pay.

Staff will be on picket lines from 7am at the City Campus, Chester Road, and the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s, St Peter’s Way, Sunderland,

Classes will be cancelled across the UK as workers, angry at a one per cent pay offer, walk out, claiming staff have faced a real-terms pay cut of 13 per cent since 2008.

All three unions said they expected there to be widespread support for the action.
