Can SUSU ask the Uni to publish how they are spending the wages of the lecturers who weren't paid during the strike? If it is not being used constructively can SUSU support the students who were disadvantaged by the strikes by protesting to this.

Thank you for your submission.

The university have provided us with this response: 

"... the withheld pay from the last period of industrial action the money was used to fund the Online Learning Grants, which were provided to students as we entered the first lockdown and moved all learning online. This was discussed and agreed with Emily Harrison who was then Union President."
