STRIKE! Dear Student

I am sorry to inform students that following a ballot earlier this month, members of the University and College Union (UCU), representing academic staff, have decided to take industrial action. A one day strike is planned for Thursday 27 May.

This follows extensive consultations between the University and recognised trade unions since March 2009 concerning the need for efficiency savings across the University. As with many other UK universities, University of the Arts London must manage cost savings across our institution, in order to ensure the University’s future economic viability and to move resources to areas focused on enhancing the student experience.

This strike action is likely to lead to the disruption of student learning and access to University facilities, which we deeply regret. We will of course do all we can to minimise the impact of any action. Disruption may be felt in different ways, depending on your course and College.
