We expect the University of Sheffield to listen to the demands of the strike of their teaching staff. The University cannot allow for yet another strike to happen.
 
As students, many of us support our lecturers who choose to take industrial action to protect their – and our – futures and interests. However, we feel that the University of Sheffield should compensate us for the fact that we have missed and we are about to lose even more time from our education as a result of the University's attitudes towards its staff.
 
To ensure that we will be compensated for these lost days, we are suing the University for forcing our staff to continue the industrial action by not listening to their demands and affecting our education as a result. If you are interested in learning more about our legal case(s) against the University or if you would like to help us or join us – you can contact us at this e-mail: studentsaffectedbystrikes@gmail.com.

We have not come to university for a simple piece of paper, but rather to learn. By refusing to treat staff with respect, the University is depriving us of the opportunity to achieve those high standards of excellence which are supposed of its students. Furthermore, we are losing the time in which our lecturers ought to be challenging us intellectually. Especially when it is already difficult with the university accepting more students each year and not hiring enough of new lecturers, and what is worse, not developing a supportive environment for academia.
 
We strongly encourage the University to take action and do everything in their power to stop the paralysation of academia.
