“We are disappointed at the outcome of the University and College Union’s (UCU’s) ballots in favour of industrial action in relation to pay and working conditions and the USS pension. These were aggregated ballots across all institutions. We don’t currently know what action will be taken or when, but we are already planning mitigations to minimise the impact on our students and ensure they continue to receive the experience they deserve.
“We appreciate the difficult and challenging times in which we are living, and we are taking active steps to support our staff and students.
“We will communicate further once we have been informed of the action which will be taken by UCU in response to the result.”
Adèle MacKinlay, Director of People and Organisational Development
