Love our ARPS

Love our academic-related, professional services staff - more than just a lecturers' union

The academic-related, professional services (ARPS) staff committee organised a month of activities to boost ARPS membership and ARPS-focused activities in branches.

Branches continue to be encouraged to elect an ARPS rep onto the branch committee, and hold meetings of ARPS members to discuss their concerns, and consider actions that would address them.
