Behaviour of Striking

Anonymous submitted on

Can SUSU please monitor and ask the striking lecturers to be mindful of their behaviours on the picket line. Many are verging on harassing passer by students by almost forcing leaflets onto them and blocking crossings from uni to the library. Whilst I understand the cause, the choice to engage should be exactly that, a choice. As a third year who has been impacted every year I have been at the uni, I feel the message is lost now with a sense of annoyance and anger at missed lecture time. Please don't make it worse by forcing the strike action and message onto us, else the support will soon dwindle.
