UCU Strike - Student Information



City Students’ Union continues to support UCU colleagues striking for better pensions, pay and working conditions. The referendum result from November 2019 and the recent motion passed at Student Members’ Meeting form our student mandate to provide ongoing support.  

We also understand that it has been and will be difficult for students. We aim to work with City University to minimise disruption, to ensure classes are rescheduled for programmes with external regulators, to ensure mitigations to assessments are made and academic and other support is ongoing. 

We advise you to check your emails regularly for communications from your programme teams or individual lecturers about class cancellations.
