From tomorrow our focus turns to action short of a strike (ASOS) and supporting members to keep the pressure on the employers by working to contract.

Under the ASOS mandate UCU is asking members to:

▪not cover for absent colleagues
▪not reschedule lectures or classes cancelled due to strike action
▪not undertake any voluntary activities.
