ZIBAT might be affected by the conflict between the labour market’s parties. Here you can read about what we know about the conflict and how you as a student can relate to it.

Dear Student at ZIBAT/EASJ

In connection to the collective bargaining negotiations, many state employees may be affected by a lock-out from the 10th of April 2018. This notice also includes the employees at EASJ/ZIBAT.

The lock-out can be called off, if the parties find a negotiated solution before April 10th 2018. But the negotiations can also continue, whereby a possible lockout can be postponed in two rounds of 14 days.

However, we hope that the parties will find a negotiated solution before April 10th, so we can continue teaching as usual.

If the lock-out becomes a reality, the majority of your teachers will not come to work. This means that, we will only be able to complete parts of the scheduled teaching. It will also affect the possibilities of guidance, etc.

We will of course do our best to ensure that the lock-out will not become too much of an inconvenience for you. But we also hope you meet us with understanding, because it is a special situation we are facing: It will not possible to complete all activities. For instance, will some of the IT-systems we use be shut down during the conflict.

However, we have decided that we will complete the planned study hours as a starting point. Some study trips will be conducted without the participation of a teacher. In other cases, teachers will have to go home, if the conflict/lock-out becomes a reality, while on a study trip.

We have also decided that ZIBAT will stay open and conduct the amount of teaching, we can manage. But we will also encourage you to use the time sensibly and prepare for the exam or the like.

We expect that we can conduct exams in June. However, if the conflict/lock-out persists, it may affect the conduct of the exam. In that case, we will thoroughly inform you about how to relate to it as a student.

We will continuously inform you about the conflict/lock-out via for instance website and the social medias. If the lock-out becomes a reality, your department or campus will disclose instruction regarding cancellations, etc.

Best regards,

UPDATED 3TH OF APRIL:

As you know, the conciliation has extended the negotiation period by up to 14 days. This means that the strike cannot be a reality before on April 22th and the lockout from April 28th, unless the conciliation within the two weeks declares that the negotiations have broken down. If this happens, strike and lockout can break out five days thereafter.

This means that there is still access to Fronter. If the strike breaks out on the April 22th, Fronter will close down on April 21st.
