Solidarity

Teach-Out Activities

Just because teaching staff are on strike, doesn’t mean education has to stop!

HW Student Union is opening its doors in solidarity to let us use their facilities. We will be hosting  a series of workshops and presentations on wide range of topics including a special screening of “Who is Europe”.

Students, Support the Strikes!

Having voted overwhelmingly for industrial action, university staff across the UK will go on strike to defend their pay and pensions from Monday 25 November to Wednesday 4 December. Colleagues at HWU will also be on strike during this period. We have issued more information to our students that offers a brief explanation of what these strikes are about, what they mean for students, and what you can do to show your support.

Read more information on our Student flyer.

We are delighted that our Student Parliament has voted to support the Industrial Action, see statement by HWUnion

The National Union of Students supports the strikes, see this joint statement.
