Declaration of participation in strike action and action short of strike (ASOS)

We would like to remind staff who are participating in the UCU industrial action that they are asked to complete an online declaration of their participation in the strike action and action short of strike (ASOS). Whilst there is no requirement or obligation to give advance notification that you are intending to take industrial action of any kind, completing the declaration will allow the University to manage the disruption to our students as effectively as possible. The University will maintain both your employer and employee pension contributions provided that you give consent via the online declaration process in a timely way.

To declare your participation in (or subsequent withdrawal from) the industrial action, please click on this link to log into Staff Connect and select the relevant Industrial Action Form button on the left-hand menu (if you intend to go on strike and participate in ASOS, you will have to click on both buttons). This will then display the declaration forms, please select the form(s) you wish to complete. Once completed, please ensure that you click on the submit button which is in the bottom right-hand corner of the form. Please note that you will need to submit both the strike and ASOS forms separately if you intend to participate in both.

If you have any questions related to the industrial action, please direct them to the Employee Relations & Business Partnering team.
