Frequently Asked Questions

List of FAQs

+How will the strike affect the running of services at the University?

The University will operate normally, as far as is practicable, and staff will be expected to minimise disruption to students and maintain services as far as possible to external visitors. Services should not be provided where disruptive action creates a risk to health and safety, e.g. where qualified support must normally be available. First aid cover is provided by staff from academic and support staff groups. Fire evacuation procedures should not be jeopardised by the absence of key staff. Where health and safety may be compromised by lack of supervision, activities should be cancelled and re-arranged.
