Draft out of office messages

 (on strike days) I am not able to check email today as members of Goldsmiths UCU are taking industrial action, along with members at 60+ other universities, in opposition to the devastating cuts to our pension scheme. Members of Goldsmiths UCU will be on strike on 22-23 February, 26-28 February, 5-8 March and 12-16 March. Please do not email on these days as I will not be able to respond to emails sent to me on strike days on my return. If you would like more information about the dispute, please go to If you are a student, please do contact to find out what steps the College is taking to avoid a dispute.
