Strike Hub Arsenal

Staff who intend to strike are not required to let UAL ahead of time. This means you may not find ahead of time that there is disruption. In practice, many staff will let students know to minimise disruption for them, but this is not a requirement.

On the days that staff return and are working, leadership can ask staff to prioritise different tasks in their contract. For example, if a staff member has been on strike Monday - Wednesday, when they come in on Thursday, their boss might ask them to focus on marking, or on organizing a particular event.

Strikes: Staff stop working during the pre-agreed, temporary strike period. The strike stops at the end of the agreed period or when demands are met, whichever is sooner. Staff lose pay during the time of the strikes.

Trade Union laws can be confusing and difficult to understand, so the National Union of Students (NUS) has prepared advice on supporting the strike action as a student. You can read it here.

We understand that although students may personally support the UCU strike, they may also have concerns about missed teaching, upcoming assessments and disruption. This is a normal concern to have and we empathize that many of you may be feeling worried, even if your classes have already finished by the time strike action takes place.

We are always here to ensure your academic interests and experiences are represented during your time at UAL. This also includes strike action and any experiences/disruption this may bring to you. There is a wide range of feedback mechanisms you can explore in raising your voice and experiences such as:

Ukrainians say the strike in Vinnytsia is part of a pattern of attacks on civilian targets with no military significance: In March, a theater in Mariupol where civilians were sheltering from bombs; in April, a train station in Kramatorsk that was filled with travelers when a missile struck; just last month, a mall in Kremenchuk where more than 20 people were killed.

More broadly, the Russian invasion has devastated civilian buildings and infrastructure around the country. Russian forces have repeatedly turned to siege tactics, encircling cities like Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol, subjecting them to relentless shelling. Airstrikes regularly hit cities far from the front lines.

With classes resuming for all paused courses at Memorial University tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 15, a number of measures have been put in place to mitigate the academic and financial impacts of the MUNFA strike.

Part one consists of a machined hard-chromed and polished pivot designed to eliminate any roughness in the trigger pull. It disengages an internal safety and the trigger stop and engages the second part of the trigger bar, which releases the striker and visible loaded chamber indicator.

Described as operating on a horizontal plane, the pivoting four-pound trigger releases the compressed striker in a very short and crisp arc of travel and with only a modicum of initial take-up. Reset is a little longer and a bit vaguer than I prefer, but does not handicap speed shooting.

The miners' strike of 1984-1985 was one of the most bitter industrial disputes Britain has ever seen. The year-long strike involved hardship and violence as pit communities from South Wales to Scotland fought to retain their local collieries - for many the only source of employment. The catalyst for the strike was the announcement by the National Coal Board (NCB) on 6th March 1984 that it intended to cut national capacity by 4 million tonnes and close 20 pits with the loss of 20,000 jobs. Cortonwood Colliery in South Yorkshire was to close imminently.

On 12th March 1984, Arthur Scargill, president of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), called a national strike against the pit closures. The decision to strike was technically illegal, as there had been no national ballot of NUM members, even though the Nottinghamshire and Midlands Coalfields for example, had called for a national ballot. Miners in Yorkshire and Kent were the first to go on strike, followed by miners in Scotland, South Wales and Durham. Britain was to witness a fierce, hard fought battle involving the government, police, press, and the NUM.

Bitter disputes still remain over the tactics all parties used; the use of the Metropolitan Police in local mining villages, accusations of biased press coverage, flying pickets used to discourage strike breakers (or 'scabs' as they were known in mining communities) from working. As the demonstrating increased, spreading to other economic targets, there were violent confrontations between pickets and police. A key confrontation occurred in the 'Battle of Orgreave' when one mass picket on 18th June 1984 was 10,000 strong and the pickets were met with police in riot gear, police horses and dogs. The strike also saw the holding of mass meetings and great marches as for example in Mansfield in May 1984, when dockers and railway workers joined miners and their families. However, opinion was divided in the face of picket line violence and tragedies which occurred, for example the death of one flying picket outside Ollerton Colliery and in South Wales where David Wilkie, a taxi driver, died taking two 'scab' miners to work at Merthyr Vale Colliery, when a concrete post was dropped from a bridge onto his car.

There was much support in the mining communities of South Wales for the strike, including miners from the 28 pits in the South Wales Coalfield, and the Area Strike Committees that covered several pits organised picketing. Other direct action was also taken as, for example, at Port Talbot Steelworks when 100 miners from South Wales occupied three cranes 120ft high.

By January 1985, the strike was beginning to disintegrate as miners facing increasing financial hardship, returned to work in increasing numbers. The NCB had offered incentives to return to work before Christmas. The NUM had failed to gain support from other key industrial trade unions and Nottinghamshire were threatening to form a separate breakaway union (which they later did, forming the Union of Democratic Mineworkers). Consequently on 3rd March 1985, a year from the start of the strike, the NUM's National Executive voted 98-91 in favour of an organised return to work. The miners returned to work defeated but not broken as they defiantly walked behind colliery bands and lodge banners, and alongside the women and children who had provided them with such immense support. 041b061a72
