Social Sciences Research Methods Programme | SSRMP


Industrial dispute/strike action planned for March 2023

Industrial/strike action by staff of the trade union UCU is planned to be held over March. If no resolution is reached to the dispute then strike action will go ahead and some SSRMP modules are likely to be affected.

Although we will ask teaching staff if they will be going on strike they are not obliged to reply or let us know if they will take action. Therefore we cannot say for sure if a particular lesson will go ahead as planned, or not. We are very sorry that SSRMP therefore cannot necessarily provide advance warning of a cancellation. However, in cases where we do know a lesson will be cancelled because of strike action then we will communicate this to affected students.

We do apologise for the uncertainty and any disruption to your studies. Although all of our staff, our colleagues in other departments, as well as the University administration, remain eager for the strike to end, the issues involved are complex and the sources of disagreement are both substantial and longstanding.

Week 6 – Wednesday 15, Thursday 16 and Friday 17 March

Week 7 – Monday 20, Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 March
