Your questions answered: Q&A materials for students

19 Nov 2021

Industrial action relating to pensions is expected to take place in 58 universities across the UK from 1 December 2021. A suite of Q&A matrials for employers contain answers to some of the key questions students will be asking before and during the strikes.

Topics covered include: why the strikes are happening; when and how long for; information for international students, those with disabilities, and those with caring and employment responsibilities; and how to claim compensation if needed.

The main national Q&A document can be downloaded below. A local version that can be customised by individual institutions is also available. Contact pensions-update@universitiesuk.ac.uk for further information.

Additional materials and formats are also available to help communications teams at the universities impacted by industrial action provide their students with all the information they might need:
