IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING RES|FEST 18
Due to the ongoing UCU industrial action, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone RES|FEST 18.
The 14 March 2018, the date of RES|FEST, is a day that UCU members are on strike over the proposed changes to the USS pension scheme. We have been fervently hoping that a resolution would have been secured by now, and that the event would be unaffected; however, although the UUK (Universities UK) and UCU (University and College Union) have begun talks today, the strike continues.
Because our community is the life and soul of RES|FEST, we feel that it cannot take place amidst strike action. Even though there is still some hope that the strike will be suspended, as the date is rapidly approaching we have decided that we have to postpone it.
We will publish a new date, for the summer term, as rapidly as possible; in the meantime, we apologise to everyone who is disappointed by this decision.
Ticket holders for RES|FEST 18 will have priority booking for the new date.
We apologise to everyone who is disappointed by this decision.
