UK universities are on the verge of strike action after an increase in required employee pension contribution. Union members at 69 universities have until October 30th to submit their ballot in favor of a work stoppage. If approved, this will be the second university strike over pensions in two years.

Meanwhile, a new report points out that union bosses in the UK saw an average pay increase of 10 percent from 2017 to 2018 and taxpayers aren’t happy about it.
