Weston College prison education branch

6 April 2022

UCU's Weston College prison education branch covers the prisons across England where Weston College delivers education.


Your branch committee raises issues of concern to members with management and reports back from meetings to members via reps, emails and meetings.  A network of reps keep your branch in touch with what is happening in their prison but we need a rep and/or health and safety rep in every prison

Reps and contacts

These play a vital role - and we are always looking for more members to help out. Reps raise issues on behalf of members and provide individual support. Training and support is provided.  Contacts distribute information including leaflets and put up posters to raise the profile of their union.

For further details contact UCU national organiser, Ronnie Kershaw.
