Update on planned strike action: 19 February

You will have received an email today from Chris Hughes, Pro-Vice-Chancellor - Education about the upcoming strike action at Warwick.

Dear students,

You will hopefully have seen the news and guidance we've shared via MyWarwick on the industrial action being planned by some staff at the University. Many of you will also have received messages from staff within your department, and seen information shared by the Students' Union.

It is very difficult to predict just how much disruption there will be - nationally and at Warwick, but I want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to mitigate any negative impact on your learning experience, and to ensure that your academic outcomes are not adversely affected by the planned industrial action.

The University will remain open. A very great deal of our teaching will continue without any disruption or need for alternative provision to be put in place, and our pastoral and wellbeing support will continue. I recognise that the planned strike falls at a key time of the academic year however, and that this may concern some of you. Please do take a look at the guidance on MyWarwick if you haven't already, and look at the frequently asked questions we've put together to respond to the questions we know many of you have.

Finally, let me reaffirm my commitment that we are doing all we can to minimise the impact on our students of any strike action at Warwick. We will also continue to keep you informed via MyWarwick as the situation progresses.

With best wishes

Chris Hughes, Pro-Vice-Chancellor - Education
