University of Leicester response to UCU strike action

The University of Leicester has responded to the University and College Union (UCU)’s strike action, which commenced today:

“It is regrettable that the UCU union has decided to proceed with strike action and has called for a global boycott.

“Our priority remains ensuring our current students can complete their assessments for this academic year, and that our finalists can graduate and take the next steps in their journey.

“We have asked UCU to meet us on several occasions, but so far they have declined. However, we will continue to try and engage with them.”
