Saturday evening 28th April and state employees could breathe a sigh of relief. Negotiators for the 120,000 state employees, including this university’s 9,390 employees, landed their part of a collective labour agreement.
Students at the largest faculty at UCPH are ready to prevent non-organised staff from working during an upcoming lockout. Education cuts and the employees' salaries and rights are related, say students.
Union reps report that both academic and technical administrative staff are largely unclear about the consequences of the lockout. They now make the invitation to four information meetings in the coming week.
Many students have exams, or have to give in bachelor’s assignments, at the beginning of April. This is at the same time as the government's announced lockout. UCPH recommends that students continue their studies as usual.
Union group AC issues notice to 6,000 state-employed academics for a strike. The University of Copenhagen has initially been kept out of the dispute.
