Guidance on coronavirus crisis 

We've produced updated advice for members on coronavirus including your rights at work, practical guidance and our position on what government and further and higher education institutions are doing to keep staff safe. There is also specific information for prison education staff and adult and community education staff. Our general secretary Jo Grady has updated members on the union's response to the crisis.

UCU's higher education committee (HEC) has taken the decision to postpone reballots on the HE disputes in the light of the current crisis. Full details of the decisions regarding next steps in the HE disputes here.

You can find an operational note on UCU's contingency planning and how to get in touch here. We will be keeping in touch regularly so please look out for emails and social media posts.
