Recording of Strike Action system

It is recommended that you are connected to UCL VPN or logged into Desktop@UCL when using this site.

You need to enter each day of strike action separately, and within 24 hours of the day it is taken. This information will be used to withhold pay.

Pay will be withheld in the payroll run following the action and 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. For those staff who take strike action but who are leaving UCL in the same month, pay may be withheld in the month strike action is taken.

If you have any questions about these calculations, 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 Pension Scheme and provided you maintain your individual employee pension contributions, UCL has decided it will maintain employer pension contributions for the period of initial strike action in December 2021, although it reserves the right not to do so in the future. Please inform the UCL Pensions team only if you do not wish for your employee and employer contributions to be maintained.

If you are part of another pension scheme (e.g. NHS) it might not be possible to maintain pension contributions during a period of strike action.

If you have questions about the impact of strike action on your pension, please contact your Trade Union or UCL Pensions

If you are not paid by UCL (e.g. Agency staff, honorary, visitors, or students) then you do not need to submit strike action dates.
