Notice of industrial action - student message

Dear student,

You may already be aware that members of the University and College Union (UCU) at 150 UK universities, including the University of Aberdeen, voted last month in favour of industrial action over staff pay and pensions.   

UCU has now announced three days of strike actionThursday 24, Friday 25 and Wednesday 30 November. 

This is a national dispute, and we hope that the situation can be resolved swiftly. We will liaise closely with UCU locally throughout the dispute. Not all staff are members of the UCU which means that the extent of action will vary across the University. Your School will be in touch in due course with further information. 

While staff have the right to strike, we are doing all we can to minimise disruption to your teaching, studies and student experience. 

I will keep you updated on developments and FAQs can be found here. In the meantime, any questions or concerns can be directed to 

Best wishes 


Professor Ruth Taylor 
Vice-Principal (Education)
