UCU Strike Action

UCU Strike Acton

On the 25th and 26th May, UCU alongside other trade Unions may be taking strike action that could potentially disrupt exams that fall on those dates. The University has said that they do not expect any disruption to exams of coursework deadlines. The Union will continue to issue updates on www.uwsu.com as the extent of the strike action becomes clearer.

UWSU calls on both UCU, the other HE trade unions, and the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) – who negotiate on behalf of universities – to return to the negotiating table, to ensure a fair, sustainable offer can be agreed.
