Information on planned industrial action taking place at the University of Hull
We are conscious that many of our students are rightly concerned about information in the media and public domain regarding proposed industrial action being undertaken by university staff across the country. We want to take this opportunity to provide you with accurate information as it currently stands and to offer contact points in order to keep up to date.
While we respect the decision of some University staff to participate in this action, we are committed to ensuring continuity of teaching and services to our students during this time and to offer appropriate guidance and support.
Staff working at universities across the country plan to take part in industrial action, starting later this month. This is part of a nationwide protest regarding proposed changes to a pension scheme offered to university staff across the country.
At this stage, we believe a number of staff members at the University of Hull will be involved. Please note that not all University of Hull staff will be taking part in industrial action. We will ask colleagues whether they intend taking part in industrial action, although they are not obliged to tell the University.
During the period of industrial action the University of Hull is open. We anticipate that many lectures and other academic activities will continue and that all main services, such as the library, and catering will be accessible.
We are taking steps to ensure you get the information and support you need for your studies, including exams and coursework.
