The University and College Union (UCU) strike action is set to take place from next Monday 25 November to Wednesday 4 December.
Called by UCU and supported by 60 universities across the country, the strike is over pension schemes, and ongoing issues with pay, gender and ethnic equality, casualisation and workloads. These issues embody the ever-increasing marketisation of our universities and our educations.
During this time, we will do everything we can to share information with and support students. Watch these pages and keep an eye on our social media. Read our statement in support of the strikes and see our latest FAQs for students, put together by staff and student members of Sussex UCU.
Because of the lack of buses, students with disabilities around campus from 9:30am can make use of a free mini bus which will operate around campus. The mini bus will be accessible transport ready.
To be able to access the minibus, you can use any of the following;
- Sunflower Lanyard (available from Falmer House/ Student Life Centre)
- Helping Hand Bus Pass
- A Concessionary Disabled Persons’ Bus Pass
As the minibus is arranged to start running at 9:30am, the gap will be filled by Streamline taxis, who will provide a wheelchair accessible vehicle from 7:30am-09:30am each day to transport disabled studentsaround campus. This will be a free taxi, available to any disabled students who need it. You can find this taxi at bus stop opposite Biology Road.
