UCU, the University and College Union, is calling its members to take part in an assessment and marking boycott in response to proposals for changes to the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS).
The union’s intention is for there to be continuous action short of a strike in the form of an assessment and marking boycott starting on Thursday, 6 November.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Howard Newby, said: “The University is committed to ensuring that the impact of any industrial action on our students is minimised. This is a national dispute which, unfortunately, the University has no control over. We will be open throughout the duration of any action and will make every effort to inform you in advance of any changes that may affect you. Academic staff have been asked to notify the University if they participate in the action so that alternative arrangements can be put in place to minimise the disruption to your studies.”
Students should contact their School Office if they have any queries.
