The University and College Union campaigns for the improvement of the pay and conditions of further and higher education staff through the UK, and for the provision of high quality education opportunities.


Defend Lambeth College UCU: fighting to defend education
The dispute centres on the college's introduction of contracts for new staff joining after 1 April 2014 which will leave them with bigger workloads, but less sick pay and fewer holidays. We say the changes will leave new joiners working longer hours than all but three of London's 38 further education colleges.

Fair pay in education
Fighting for a fair deal for college and university staff.

Stamp Out Casual Contracts
UCU believes that high quality education and fair working conditions depend on contracts that give staff stability and continuity of employment. Casualisation is bad for staff and bad for education, yet it's endemic in our colleges and universities.

Fighting privatisation in tertiary education
We have one of the fastest growing private sectors in Europe and the level of private investment in tertiary education in the UK is already far above the EU and OECD averages.

Workload and Stress
Rising workloads - linked to job and funding cuts and the increasing intensity of work in post-16 education - are a growing problem. Following a number of key decisions hy UCU Congress, UCU is committed to campaigning to control workloads and tackle performance management strategies and occupational stress and bullying in the sector.
