Industrial action update – strike action, end of marking and assessment boycott confirmed

September 12th, 2023

The University of Nottingham is among 140 universities across the country that may experience national industrial action by members of the University & College Union (UCU), in the form of strike action between Monday 25 and Friday 29 September. 

We have also been informed that UCU will not be continuing the marking and assessment boycott activity, although all other action short of a strike – where staff work to contract and do not undertake voluntary activity – will remain effective. 

The University recognises that any period of industrial action will be challenging, appreciates that colleagues do not undertake industrial action lightly and respects their right to participate. 

We also recognise that students will be concerned about the potential impact of industrial action on their studies and the University’s priority will be to minimise this. 

The university has published staff information about the industrial action as well as student FAQs and we will keep staff and students updated with further information as it becomes available.
