University and College Union launches 1 June

1 June 2006

The new University and College Union has today been created by the amalgamation of the Association of University Teachers and NATFHE - The University & College Lecturers' Union.

The new union represents almost 120,000 staff working in further and higher education and is the UK's largest and most effective voice in post-school education.

Built on the shared experience and expertise of the two strong unions - AUT and NATFHE - the newly created UCU brings together academics, lecturers, trainers, instructors, researchers, administrators, managers, computer staff, librarians and postgraduates from universities, colleges, prisons adult education and training organisations.
