Following a national ballot, the union, UCU, that represents staff in the higher education sector has called a strike on three days in late November, and also "action short of a strike" during a period that starts on Wednesday, 23 November. During this period, colleagues are invited to take various actions, including abstaining from voluntary activities. I view the maintenance of Spivey's Corner as an activity I undertake voluntarily and not part of any contract of employment, and I cannot guarantee that it will remain accessible during the period of the dispute. In addition, some materials on the site may pertain to lectures that are cancelled by myself or others as part of the strike, and we are asked not to make them available online. Further details of the reasons for the strike and how it affects teaching in Oxford are on a brief FAQ page.
