UCU and You

  • UCU is a membership organisation, looking after the interests of its membership. 
  • As a democratic organisation, it determines its engagement through a branch structure on local, national and global issues.
  • As an education union, it takes a practical and moral stance determined by its membership. 
  • Locally UCU campaigns and supports its members directly in the workplace. 
  • UCU is one of three recognised trade unions at UoM and is recognised to negotiate for members of staff employed on grade 6 and above. 
  • Unite and Unison are the other two unions who negotiate on behalf of staff grade 5 and below.
  • The Student Union is a union for our students.
