  • Build the Union: UCU's national recruitment campaign
    As the cuts bite across the public sector, it's never been more important to build our union. UCU launched a major recruitment drive, and to support this have produced a new branch support pack.
  • Being a rep
    Information on the various rep roles and the legislation, agreements and practice that empower the rep.
  • Building your branch
    The secret of union power is having a strong and active branch behind you. Building the strength and activity of your branch is the most important task for UCU workplace representatives; everything else flows from this. On this page you will find a range of guides to help you.
  • Recruiting and organising
    Organising and recruitment work builds the capacity of your branch or local association (LA). A coordinated effort to increase membership density through recruitment and retention will pay off in every area of the union's activity.
  • Branch briefings and guidance
    This page provides a range of briefing and guidance documents to help branch officers when faced with local issues or bargaining situations.
