In a move certain to repair relations between staff and the powers that be, and end the current strike, I read that the University is offering staff two tickets to the opera for the price of one.
The move represents a continuation of VC Dave's decision to confront the industrial action in the manner that one would discipline a difficult child – witholding privileges and dangling treats (or in this case Puccini) in return for good behaviour.
My sources tell me that the AUT are discussing calling off the action short of a strike as we speak.
