More than 70,000 staff at 150 universities across the UK will strike for 18 days between February and March in disputes over pay and job conditions, the University and College Union (UCU) said on Thursday.
"The clock is now ticking for the sector to produce a deal or be hit with widespread disruption throughout spring," UCU general secretary Jo Grady said.
The union is demanding better pay after employers set a pay rise worth 3% after more than a decade of below-inflation pay awards, it said.
