RMT rail strike - guidelines for staff

Northern train services in Yorkshire may be affected by industrial action which is due to take place on 3 and 5 October. The University has issued the following guidelines for staff.

You should refer to the Northern rail website to keep up to date on services affected, making every effort to attend work.  If your normal train service is affected, please make your own professional judgment on the most sensible course of action, including considering alternative ways to get to work.

If the industrial action prevents you from coming to work, please advise your school or service as soon as you are aware.

Heads of school/service should be flexible about start and finish times and staff working flexitime, making up hours at a later time, working from home or requesting annual leave.  Above all, heads should be fair and flexible given individual circumstances.

Please contact your HR Manager if you have any queries.
