Why is the union restricting free membership to these two categories?

UCU wants to build a strong trade union culture across the whole of the sector, and we recognise that there are problems such as widespread casualisation and other unfair working practices in all grades. However, these two categories are the fastest increasing parts of the HE and FE workforce and they are - by and large - younger than those in other more established areas. We are therefore making a substantial, long term investment in the future of the profession.
