Strike Notification Forms

Member of staff at the University of Sheffield? Use this form to notify about the strike action (when asked to provide one). This form is now identical with the one on the HR pages.

We do not recommend that you complete a form indicating that you are taking action short of a strike. However, if your manager asks you verbally whether you are undertaking action short of a strike, you should respond truthfully.
