Update on re-direction of salary payments arising from UCU industrial action

We have calculated that, subject to audit, the University saved approximately £400k in salary costs due to UCU members not receiving salaries for periods of industrial action in February and March 2018. Following consultation with the Students’ Union, this sum will be divided between the University’s student hardship fund – which both undergraduate and postgraduate students can access when they are experiencing short-term difficulties in meeting their day to day living costs, or facing financial hardship, and the creation of additional new study spaces on campus.

For more information about our student hardship funds and how students can access them and other forms of support from the University, see:
