Strike FAQs

Urgent advice on using the UCL HR System for recording Strike Action and Action Short of a Strike

UCU has some questions on which we are currently seeking advice and we will be writing to members shortly. 
Meanwhile, we ask staff to desist from completing this system.
Staff should of course truthfully respond if asked by a manager on a working day whether they participated.
Therefore our advice to UCU members and non-members alike is to comply with your legal obligations. Please answer the question truthfully when asked by your manager regarding participation in the strike. On dates when you would normally work a standard working day where a 1 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) deduction would be appropriate you can state this. On all other dates you should either indicate the number of hours that you worked, or the proportion of 7.3 hours (1FTE) that this represents.
Read our objections to the current system in UCU's letter to HR and the Provost.

UCU have compiled an extensive list of frequently asked questions concerning the forthcoming strike action, available here:
