As members have previously been advised a small group of NIPSA members employed by QUB Creche commenced industrial action on International Women’s Day on 8 March 2021. Our brave members have been on industrial action since and have taken a number of half-day strikes over the last few weeks. In response QUB have deducted a full day’s pay when members have taken a half day strike. While there have been negotiations in the last few days it has been decided to hold a further series of action over the coming days.

In order to support these brave workers a rally will be held at 11 College Gardens, Belfast at 1pm on Friday 11 June 2021. It is anticipated that supporters from NIPSA and from across the trade union movement will come to support these workers. If you are able to attend please do so and ensure that QUB Management are made fully aware of the support from across the Trade Union Movement and from NIPSA.
