UCU marking boycott confirmed to commence at all Liverpool universities

The boycott comes into force from today (April 20th)


The UCU has called for staff to stop all summative marking and assessment duties from today (April 20th). This boycott covers all assessment related work, which includes exam invigilation and the processing of marks.

The marking boycott will remain until October 2023 unless the current disputes are settled or the UCU calls it off.

The boycott is affecting 145 universities, including the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Edge Hill University.

This means that any work that students submit from today, which includes coursework, exams, any practical work etc. will not be marked by staff that are participating in the marking boycott.

You can find more information about the marking boycott on the UCU website.
