KCLSU response to Industrial Action

KCLSU Officers

As you may be aware, The Universities and Colleges Union have balloted to strike owing to a dispute with Universities UK on pensions. The strikes are scheduled for the 24, 25, 26 February and 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 19 and 20 March.

We understand that you may feel distressed during this time and we are working closely with the university to ensure that strikes cause the least possible disruption. The officers have taken into account the Academics’ right to strike and the university’s position on this matter and subsequently opted to take a neutral stance.

We will continue to have discussions with the University around additional support to mitigate lost learning and how the money from salary savings may be used.

You can find out more about how KCLSU can support you during the strikes, including through our academic advice team, here.
