Strike still on…

The strike on Wednesday and Thursday is still going ahead. This is our latest information.

It is very doubtful any meaningful and enhanced offer will be made until the employers have realised the strength (or not) of the action being taken.

We have received support from external organisers of meeting due to take place in Senate House on the days of action, informing us their events are being cancelled so that the picket line is not crossed.

UCU has prepared a FAQ. (opens in new window)

Please note that the best way of guaranteeing protection from the consequences of being absent from work on a strike day is to be a member of UCU. The University appears unlikely to take action against anyone who agrees not to cross the picket line, but the safest approach is to encourage all colleagues who wish to support our campaign to join UCU as well.
