Joint statements issued 6 March 2020:
Industrial action is now underway between Thursday 20 February and Friday 13 March on the following dates:
Week one - Thursday 20 and Friday 21 February
Week two - Monday 24, Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 February
Week three - Monday 2, Tuesday 3, Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 March
Week four - Monday 9, Tuesday 10, Wednesday 11, Thursday 12 and Friday 13 March
The industrial action is in response to disputes concerning pay and conditions, and proposed changes to the USS pension.
We recognise that the decision to take industrial action is not taken lightly and we respect colleagues right to take part. We also understand that students will be concerned about the potential impact on their studies.
Our priority is making sure we have the right support and procedures in place and we are working across academic and support departments to minimise the impact on students and to mitigate for any lost learning opportunities as a result of the action taken to date.
