Additional rail strike dates announced

Rail union RMT has announced four more strike dates affecting Northern Rail services.

Industrial action is planned for every Saturday in January.

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 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.
