Updates - UCU Strike Action

The Universities and Colleges Union (UCU) has planned a series of strikes over planned changes to the Universities Superannuation Scheme. The strikes are scheduled to run between 22nd February and 16th March 2018 .

Several SSRMC modules are scheduled to be taught on days affected by the strike.

Lecturers are not legally obliged to inform us in advance whether or not they will be taking strike action. Therefore, it's possible that students who have booked onto modules taking place on strike days will not know whether their lectures will take place or not.

Some lecturers have opted to provide this information. We will share this information with students via this website.

Please note that the situation may change at any time: if the strike is called off, some cancelled lectures may go ahead, while some lecturers may decide at a late stage to take strike action. We apologise for the disruption caused.
