Staff members at the Queen's University Belfast.
Strikes by some staff at Queen's University Belfast (QUB) and Ulster University (UU) resume today.
The action by members of the University and College Union (UCU) had previously been "paused" while pay talks were held.
But the union has now decided to hold six days of strikes from Wednesday until 22 March.
Some staff at about 150 universities across the UK will strike despite the fact that talks between the UCU and the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) are still taking place.
