Strike Action Update – from your VP Academic Ekansh Kapoor

The GSA can confirm that strike action will take place at the University of York.

The University and College Union informed us of the results of its ballot on industrial action on Friday, November 5, 2021. The University of York branch of UCU along with 36 other Universities voted to take strike action over the pensions dispute.

Our priority for the next few weeks is to best support you in your academic life at the University. Stay in touch with your Academic Reps and with me directly if you face any issues or if you want to report anything.

A Q&A Panel is taking place at the University on the 16th November where both UCU and the University are invited. I will be representing all Postgraduate students on the panel.

Below you can find a form where you can ask any anonymous question you would like answers from either UCU or the University. I can then take the selected questions along with me to the panel discussion. You will also will get the opportunity to ask the questions live during the panel discussion.

Please ask your questions by writing them on this form here
