Why join UCU? Almost 110,000 of your colleagues have chosen to belong to UCU - the largest union and most effective voice for people like you working in post-school education.

UCU is the largest post-school union in the world: a force working for education that your employer and the government cannot ignore. It understands the work you do, and the problems you face. And, of course, the more members UCU has, the more effective the support and protection we offer will be. 

Whether you are an academic, lecturer, trainer, instructor, researcher, administrator, manager, computer staff, librarian or postgraduate from a university, college, prison, adult education or training organisation, UCU is the union for you.

Or join over the phone: 0333 207 0719*

*Lines open 9:15am-4:45pm, Mon-Fri. Calls are charged at standard rates; if you have inclusive call minutes or an allowance calls to this number are usually included (please check with your provider).

We do not currently support the Firefox browser, but are working to rectify this issue. Recommended browsers for the joining process are Chrome and Internet Explorer.
