The University and College Union (UCU) undertook a ballot for industrial action in September 2022. This was in respect of a dispute on pay following the outcome of national pay negotiations for 2022/23. The aggregate ballot was in relation to industrial action by way of strike action and action short of strike (ASOS). UCU members secured a mandate for both strike and ASOS. Three days of strike action took place at the end of 2022 and BU has now been notified of a further 18 days of strike action from Wednesday 1 February 2023.
