The result of the Referendum on UCU Strike Action has confirmed The SU will not be supporting the strikes.
As a result of our referendum, our student community have voted for the SU to not support the UCU strike action.
The results were as follows:
1456 students voted in the referendum asking “Should The SU support UCU industrial action until the end of the academic year 2022/23?”
675 voted ‘YES’
705 voted ‘NO’
76 voted ‘ABSTAIN’
Quoracy for this referendum was 1049.
The SU Officers will be looking to support students who are affected, individually and collectively over the coming weeks, and will be lobbying the University to ensure that the impacts of the strike action are appropriately mitigated.
You can find further information about the strikes, and details of advice and support on our webpage.
