The University and College Union have issued the College with a notice of industrial action in the form of a one day strike on 30 November 2011. This is in support of their continued dispute on the USS pension reform and is timed to coincide with the protest by public sector trade unions at the Government’s proposed changes to public sector pension schemes.
The strike by public sector workers which is not linked with the College may impact on the ability of staff to attend work as normal on 30 November. The most likely causes of disruption are school closures and changes to travel services. Each member of staff is expected to make every reasonable effort to present him/herself for work.
Guidance for staff participating in industrial action on 30 November and for staff who may be impacted by the wider strikes by public sector workers is available on the HR website at: http://wwwf.imperial.ac.uk/blog/hr-notices/2011/11/23/ind-action-nov-11/
