UCU Strike Statement from your Sabbatical Officers

We are pleased to announce, after a landslide victory in our referendum for the ‘yes’ campaign, that we stand in solidarity with our striking academic and professional staff.

The full breakdown of the results and our next steps can be accessed via this link.

During the next two weeks, we, your elected officer team, will be standing shoulder to shoulder with our striking staff members. We hope to see as many students as possible engaging with their university staff, by asking questions and supporting their cause. We would also urge you to learn more about the dispute, and why our staff have taken to picketing at our university entrances. Click here for more information.

Please let us know if there are any specific actions you would like us to take, we are mandated to listen to our students, and take great pride in engaging with people from across the university in discussing potential solutions.

We understand that some of you may be frustrated with the disruption to your studies and may be concerned about your upcoming exams. We are, and will continue to be here for you – unconditionally - throughout this period. If you would like to make a compensation claim, head over to our Advice Service, they are here to support you. Finally, our FAQs on the industrial action can be accessed here.
