IT Strike info for staff

UPDATED 19 Jan

Strike Dates

Strikes will take place on each of the 5 days in the first week of the next semester, Monday 8 – Friday 12 February 2021.

No live (‘synchronous’) activities will take on strike days.

Strike pay claims

The generosity of donations from fellow UCU branches, our own Brighton Unison branch and many other groups and individuals across the country means that we are able to support members who are financially hardest-hit by strike pay deductions. Use the form below to make an application to the strike hardship fund

Working to Contract

The work-to-contract (W2C) will involve sticking to our contracted 37 hours a week, and withdrawing goodwill by declining to perform tasks for which we have no hours allocated in our workload. The W2C also provides the legal protection to refuse to reschedule classes and activities lost on strike days.

To collectivise this action, we are asking members to post ‘Things that Couldn’t Be Done’ each week here: http://blogs.brighton.ac.uk/ucu/wtc-things-there-were-no-time-for/

Work to contract continues indefinitely, see this document for info:
