The University and College Union (UCU) is the trades union in the UK which works for professionals in higher and further education, including lecturers, researchers, and academic-related staff such as librarians, administrators and computing professionals. UCU is recognised by higher and further education employers at a national level, and by many individual institutions locally throughout the UK, for the purposes of negotiating salaries, pay structures and conditions of employment.
Warwick UCU is the local branch of the University and College Union, and we provide advice and support to members employed at the University of Warwick. We negotiate with the University on behalf of our members, for example on conditions of service. We also offer individual support for members in relation to difficulties encountered as part of their employment by Warwick — see our page on personal casework.
If you would like to join, click here to find out more about membership, including whether or not you are eligible to join.
We also have a page of useful links to web sites containing employment related help and information which we think are really useful for our members.
