We understand how frustrating strike action will be for our students and staff.

We are focused on doing everything we can to minimise the impact on teaching and learning working closely with faculties and departments to provide support and help to ensure that students continue to receive the best possible experience at King's.

We continue to strive to find a constructive and collaborative way forward, recognising that certain issues raised such as those on pensions and pay are negotiated and decided at a national level, so while we do our best to influence and secure the best outcome for our staff, the final decision is not ours to make.
