UCU have indicated intention to strike on 22 and 24 March

The Universities & Colleges Union (UCU) has indicated that it intends to take strike action in response to proposed changes to the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). UCU will proceed with its planned action unless there is a resolution of its disagreement with the Higher Education sector's Employers' Pension Forum by Thursday 17 March 2011.

If the action goes ahead, members of the UCU will strike on Tuesday 22 March and Thursday 24 March.

We will publish further guidance for students if it is confirmed that the strike action will go ahead. For the present, students are asked to assume that planned activities will take place as scheduled on these days.

The main aim of the University will be to minimise the impact of any industrial action on the student experience.
