THE University of Portsmouth University is likely to be affected when a national walk-out takes place later this month.

The University and College Union said members will stage strikes at UK universities on May 25 and 26. It comes as a row escalates over pay.

Further industrial action will see staff working to contract from this point, which includes refusing to work overtime or covering for colleagues.

The move is likely to cause disruption on campuses in Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester and Chichester.

As well as lecturers, researchers, librarians and other higher education staff are due to take part in the walkouts.

Further strikes could then follow if no agreement is reached.
