Strike dates announced

As reported in December, the UCU special sector conference on USS recommended a pattern of 14 days of strike action as in 2018. The UCU NEC agreed that institutions could vary this pattern slightly once employers were notified. The OU has a more 'chunky' pattern. Many members told us that short bursts of action placed higher burdens on staff since the expectation was that the work would just be made up. We have also added one Saturday, which has not been attempted before.

No further revision is expected, so our dates are:

Week one: Thursday 20 and Friday 21 February

Week two: Monday 24, Tuesday 25, Wednesday 26, Thursday 27, Friday 28 and Saturday 29 February

Week three: Monday 2, Tuesday 3, Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 March

Week four: Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 March

Information on picket lines is on our Campaigns page
