RMT rail strike 29 March 2018 – guidelines for staff

Northern train services across the North may be affected by industrial action due to take place on Thursday 29 March 2018.

The University has issued the following guidelines for staff.

To keep up to date on services affected, you should refer to the Northern website, which will be updated with strike day timetables. You should make every effort to attend work. If your normal train service is due to be affected, please make your own professional judgement 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.
