UCU strike action | Latest info for students

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.
