Industrial action dates

Industrial action has been announced on the following days, which will affect a number of national rail networks:
  • Friday 1 September (ASLEF Union)
  • Saturday 2 September (RMT Union)

If you are coming into campus on the train, please check with the rail operator and allow extra time to get to your destination. You can visit  Transport for London ,  National Rail  or the  Citymapper app , to plan alternative types of transport such as bicycle and scooter hire, walking, buses etc. If you are unable to get to work using alternative transport, you should let your line manager know as soon as possible.

If transport strikes affect your ability to come into campus, you are welcome to work from home on the affected days, if your job lends itself to home working.

Staff unable to work from home can agree flexible solutions with managers such as using TOIL or making up lost time where possible. If alternative arrangements cannot be found, staff should arrange to take annual leave or unpaid leave, in line with our  Special Leave Policy  on travel and weather disruption.

Please keep following the news and the   to find out if your journey is likely to be affected.
