Warwick’s strike-breaking history students

A group of history undergraduates at Warwick are causing controversy by organising their own student-led lectures while their tutors go on strike

The group arranged for older students to deliver a lecture on the subject they would have been taught if not for the strike disruptions – to the consternation of many of their peers and tutors, who have accused them of strike-breaking.

Larissa Quinn, one of the organisers, defended the initiative: “If a friend of mine had happened to take a module last year that I currently study and had gone over with me the topic of a lecture I had missed due to a strike, his help would not constitute ‘anti-strike behaviour’.

“This is exactly what we are doing, only on a larger and more universal scale.”
