Strike Action

You need to enter each day of strike action separately, and within 24 hours of the day it is taken.

Deductions for strike action taken in September will be actioned in the October 2023 payroll.  Deductions will be made at the rate of 1/365 of your annual salary per day. The amount withheld for part-time staff will be pro-rated based on their contracted hours on strike days. 

Staff who participate in strike action but who are leaving UCL before September will be contacted to make arrangements for recovery of the overpayment.

If you have any questions on this, please contact

If you make a mistake when submitting the day(s) on which you are taking action, please log a ticket with in order that your record might be amended. If you are unable to login, please email and the team will record your industrial action.

If you participate in the USS or SAUL Pension Scheme we will maintain your employee and employer pension contributions for strike action in Feb/Mar, although we reserve the right not to do so for future periods. Please inform if you do not wish for your employee and employer contributions to be maintained.

If you are part of the NHS or the Civil Service pension scheme it is not possible to maintain pension contributions on strike days.

Action Short of Strike

If you are taking part in ASoS which comprises of not rescheduling classes and lectures cancelled due to strike action, not covering for absent colleagues, and removing uploaded materials related to, and/or not sharing materials related to, lectures or classes that will be or have been cancelled as a result of strike action, this must be recorded as ASoS on the online reporting system. We do not currently plan to withhold pay for this type of ASoS. However, we reserve the right to withhold up to 100% of pay for each day of ASoS where only partial performance of duties is carried out and will keep this under review. Any decision to withhold pay will be informed by the impact ASoS has on our students and the level of disruption to their education.

For each day you participate in ASoS which comprises of working to contract only there is no need to record this and UCL will not withhold pay for this.

If you do not undertake any kind of paid work, you should not submit strike action dates.

If you work on UCL premises but are not employed, hired or paid by UCL (e.g. Agency staff, NHS staff, contractors, sub-contractors etc) you should not submit strike action dates on this portal but should inform your employer and/or your hiring manager.
