Strike action affecting entry to Senate House on 6th June 2018

While a planned strike by IWGB members (cleaners, security, porters and post-room staff) will be taking place on Wednesday, 6 June 2018, our Library will be open for business as usual. 
There will be picketing throughout the day, and we expect some disruption and noise around the perimeter of Senate House. There will be additional security guards on the front doors of both buildings checking staff and library passes.
Staff, students and visitors may be subject to a bag search if security deem this to be necessary.
The IWGB union has announced a protest in the evening from 5.30pm to 7.30pm outside Senate House and it is expected that there will be noise throughout the duration of the protest.
