Further to the announcement last week that the UCU plans to take a further 18 days of strike action in February and March, it is now confirmed that the first of these will take place on Wednesday 1 February 2023.
This action is regarding the ongoing dispute in relation to pay, pensions and working conditions that UCU members voted to take strike action on, back in October 2022.
The University will remain open throughout the strike action – our aim is for activities and facilities to run as close to a normal service as possible. However, there may be an impact on your teaching or research supervision on the day of the strike.
To find out more about the strike action and how it may affect you, see our strike action information for students.
Wider strike action
You may also be aware of wider strike action disrupting National Rail services and a number of primary and secondary schools across the region in February and March. Find out what to do here if this impacts you.
