UBU Statement on UCU Strikes
The University and College Union has announced that members nationally including staff from the University of Bradford will be partaking in industrial action. This will involve eight days of strike action from Monday 25 November to Wednesday 4 December. More details of this action can be viewed online via https://www.ucu.org.uk/article/10408/UCU-announces-eight-days-of-strikes-starting-this-month-at-60-universities
Whilst the Students’ Union supports the right of staff to partake in industrial action, and empathise with staff who feel the need to strike, we also understand our paramount concern is to support students. We will be in constant contact with University senior leaders and trade unions leaders to discuss ways in which student are supported during this period in order to minimise impact on their long-term academic progression.
For any concerns relating to the strikes please contact our advice centre – firstname.lastname@example.org
