Strike Action

Please bookmark this page or save it to your favourites in your browser as during strike action we will not typically be using University emails and vital information relating to the strike will be added to this page throughout the strike.

Online picket registration

Every strike day at 10.30 am we will be asking you to sign in to a virtual picket line. This will be vitally important in allowing us to come together in numbers to provide support and solidarity to our colleagues at risk and also to one another. Updates on the dispute will be provided in these morning meetings where possible and information on the day’s strike activities including teach out sessions and rallies will also be shared on these daily meetings so do please attend.

The daily picket registration will be held on Zoom. To attend each day just click here.

If you need to dial in then please contact the Branch and we can look to arrange this.

Risk assessment

During the strike we will be ensuring that pickets and on-campus activities are conducted in a safe manner.

We expect social distancing wherever possible and when it is not possible to socially distance then you should wear face coverings unless you are exempt.

If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms then you should not attend activities on campus and should look to book a test immediately.

Please make sure you have read our risk assessment and familiarised yourself with it before you visit campus for any strike activities. Please also read the UCU guidance on picketing in advance of going on a picket line.
