There will be further nationwide rail strike action on Thursday 18 and Saturday 20 August. There will also be London-wide strikes affecting Tube, Rail and bus services on Friday 19 August.

The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) has announced further train strikes on Thursday 18 and Saturday 20 August 2022. In addition, there will be a London-wide strike with UNITE affecting Tube, Rail and bus services on Friday 19 August 2022.

National rail routes into London will be affected on 18 August and 20 August. You can visit National Rail for specific details or check your train provider. TfL will not be affected on these two days.

On Friday 19 August most of the tube, London Overground and some buses will be affected by strike action. Please check the Transport for London

UCL will keep activities running for students, with student-facing and campus based staff asked to come in to work where possible by planning ahead and allowing more time for travel.
The  Transport for London ,  National Rail  journey planners or the  Citymapper app  may be useful for planning alternative routes or alternative types of transport such as underground, buses, bicycle and scooter hire, walking, etc. If you are unable to get to work using alternative transport, you should advise your line manager as early as possible.

If the strikes completely prevent you from coming into campus, you may work from home if your job lends itself to remote working. 

For staff unable to work from home, managers are encouraged to agree flexible solutions such as using TOIL or making up lost time where possible. If alternative arrangements cannot be found, staff should arrange to take annual leave or unpaid leave, in line with our  Special Leave policy  on travel and weather disruption. 

For further updates on the strike action, please keep an eye on the news, the  TfL  and  National Rail  websites, and your local train provider website.
