What benefits does free membership entitle me to?

Members who qualify as described above, are entitled to all the benefits of full membership.

Being a full member of UCU entitles you to access to employment advice including where necessary our excellent case workers and renowned legal service, direct advocacy and advice by local UCU representatives, a range of CPD opportunities to enable you to get the best out of your career and the right to take part in the union's local and national decision making. It is UCU which negotiates the salaries and working conditions of staff throughout further and higher education and membership gives you a say in what we prioritise in our local and national talks with the employer.
