Additional Industrial Action

Author:Nigel Waugh
Job title: Director of Human Resources

Important notice

Colleagues,

I regret to advise you that the University and College Union (UCU), Unison and Unite have notified UCL that they have instructed their members to take strike action on 6th February for the whole day. In accordance with UCL’s previous practice, members of these unions who take strike action or staff who do not cross picket lines on that day will have their pay withheld for that day. This industrial action is in addition to the two hour strike that the UCU has called for on 10th February.  

I further regret to advise that we are aware that the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) and Transport Salaried Staffs' Association (TSSA) have called two 48‑hour Tube strikes. Transport for London has advised that talks are underway to avoid the strikes, but if they go ahead, they will start from

  • 21:00 Tuesday 4th  February until 20:59 Thursday 6th February; and,
  • 21:00 Tuesday 11th  February until 20:59 Thursday 13th February.

For up to date travel information, please visit http://www.tfl.gov.uk/.  We realise that this action will disadvantage many UCL staff and students. Staff members are asked to  try to come in to work if practicable but, if not, to advise their Head of Department (or deputy or line manager) if they are unable to come in.

Information on UCL’s policy in relation to travel disruption and frequently asked questions in relation to the strike action called by the campus unions can be found on the HR Website:  http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/industrial_action.php.  Further advice can be provided by your HR Consultant whose details can be found here.
