Strike Action Announcement - September 2023

College Update

Some Lecturers across Northern Ireland are set to take part in five days of strike action next week and on Monday 25 September in a dispute over pay and working conditions.
A number of Belfast Met lecturers are members of the striking Union.  This may cause significant disruption to Belfast Met students on the following dates:

• Monday 18 – Friday 22 September 2023
• Monday 25 September 2023

All college campuses will remain open so unless you have received direct communication from the College, you should attend your timetabled classes.

To ensure you receive your financial entitlements e.g., Training Allowances and Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), your attendance will be automatically approved/automatically recorded as present on each day of the strike action.
All exams are going ahead as normal and our libraries and facilities will remain open.
Please regularly check your college email address, our website ( and our social media channels including Facebook, Instagram and X for further updates.
