Want to get involved?

Once you are a member, there are plenty of ways of getting more involved in the work of UCU to defend higher education and the pay and conditions of those who work in it:

  • attend local branch meetings
  • recruit new members – we will provide you with the materials you need
  • become a local rep – UCU will provide training and you are entitled to attend training as a legal right
  • become a caseworker – again UCU will provide training for this vital work of providing support and representation for our members
  • act as a local contact for your department – distribute materials, post notices, act as a first contact for new members. You can download posters and other materials here
  • join the local committee – committee meetings are normally attended by local officers and reps
  • become a branch officer- these are elected annually towards the end of Semester 2.

If you wish to get more involved with the union or simply want to talk about issues affecting you, please contact the Branch Administrator who will be glad to talk with you.
