We are and will continue to be here for you. We will be in contact with our UCU branch, City leadership and schools to ensure mitigations and support are in place for you. Our Advice Service continues to support all students and offers advice on complaints for compensation claims.
Some of you may remember our Referendum from November, where the student body voted for the Students’ Union to support UCU members and the industrial action. Going forward, there will be a policy motion in our annual Student Members’ Meeting on Tuesday February 12th. We invite you all to attend the meeting next week to vote on the motion on the UCU Industrial Action.
