Notice of strike action - staff message

Dear colleagues,

As you may already be aware, 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 following two separate ballots on pay and pensions.

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

The industrial action will also include action short of a strike, intended to be continuous, beginning on Wednesday 23 November.  

These are national negotiations between UCU and the Universities & Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) in relation to pay, and Universities UK (UUK) in relation to the USS pension scheme, and we hope that the situation can be resolved, and action averted. We will liaise closely with UCU locally throughout the dispute.

In the meantime, planning is underway to ensure disruption can be kept to a minimum for students and staff.

I will keep you updated on developments and staff FAQs can be found here.

Also, for your information - this message will shortly be issued to students.

Best wishes

Karl
