All out for USS

It's not too late! Universities UK can still commit to meaningful negotiations over pensions and end the strike action.

UCU PeoplePlus prison education branch

UCU's PeoplePlus prison education branch (formerly A4e) was established in November 2013.

The committee meets regularly with managers to raise issues of concern to members. A network of reps allow the committee to keep in touch with members in just under 30 prisons where PeoplePlus delivers education services.

Name change for A4e

Formerly UCU's A4e prison education branch, it changed to UCU's PeoplePlus prison education branch in July 2015, following the sale of A4e to Staffline Group plc. A4e was merged with another Staffline Group acquisition, Avanta, to form a new company called PeoplePlus.

Reps and contacts

These play a vital role - and we are always looking for more members to help out. Reps provide individual support to members (full training and support is provided) whereas contacts distribute information and raise our profile. For further details contact UCU national organiser, Ronnie Kershaw.
